The salaries of the federal government workers are being processed, the Head of Press and Public Relations of the office of the Accountant General of the Federation, Kenechukwu Offie, said on Tuesday in Abuja.
She said that civil servants’ salaries for October had been delayed due to technical issues, which had now been resolved.
“I have spoken to the Director of Funds and the Director, IPPIS, and I can authoritatively tell you that all technical issues have been sorted out and there is money to effect the payment.
“So everything is on course and I can assure you that salaries are already being processed and people will start getting alert from today,” she said.
On Monday, the Presidency issued a statement, signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, saying that the delay was caused by unforeseen technical challenges.
