The Federal government of Nigeria has slashed the November’s salaries of civil servants in ministries, departments and paratatals even as prices of goods and services spike to the highest.
According to Leadership Newspaper findings, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and the Public Complain Commission last month were respectively under lock and key as a result of payment of half salaries while many others joined in November.

The memo addressed by the HOF to all staff, titled: ‘Reduction in November 2016 Salary’ stated that ‘we received the Payroll report for the Month of November 2016 from IPPIS and observed there is a drastic reduction in the Net Pay of Voice of Nigeria staff’.
