Public workers under the aegis of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reverse all alleged illegal recruitments conducted during the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan or risk trade union dispute.
The new recruits into the service were said to have been deployed to senior officers’ positions, starting from assistant directors upward.
The President of ASCSN, Bobboi Bala Kaigama, according to a statement issued by its Secretary-General, Alade Lawal, made these demands at its National Executive Council meeting in Kaduna.
Speaking on the demand by civil servants for pay increase, the ASCSN President said that although no amount had been fixed, the organised labour movement, including the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria and the Nigeria Labour Congress, had set up two committees to determine the percentage.
According to him, the upward review of workers’ salaries was necessary going by the current economic realities vis-à-vis the poor salary being paid to civil servants in Nigeria.
