#NigeriaDecide: FG Orders Immediate Payment Of Salaries

The Federal Government of Nigeria has directed the immediate payment of workers February salaries to enable workers to travel and vote for Saturday's Presidential and National Assembly without any difficulties.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made this known when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday.

According to him, this is to enable the civil servants planning to travel for the elections to do so before Saturday.
"On the part of the Federal Government also, we decided that to make it easy for those who will want to go back to vote, salary payment started yesterday (Tuesday) as opposed to the normal 25th of every month.
"This is just to ease the burden of people who want to go back and cast their vote," he said.
