Nigerian Civil Servants might need to celebrate the festive season on a low-key as the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration may not pay their salaries until 2022.
This was disclosed in a circular signed by the FMC Keffi’s head of finance and accounts, Samson Adegoke, dated November 25.
The circular read, “Due to the recurrent trends of shortfall in budgetary allocations and its attendant effect on the payment of salaries in recent times across various MDAS, the management wish to regrettably inform all staff that there might be an envisaged delay in payment of December 2021 salary in the Centre”

The civil servants in the federal government’s ministries, departments, and agencies were further advised to spend their November salaries wisely.
“Accordingly, all staff are advised to be cautious in spending their November 2021 salary and to make provisions for Christmas celebrations therefrom,” the circular added.
The Inspector General of Police, Alkali Usman, also informed all departments and commissioners of police across Nigeria, in a signal message, about a delay in payments.
“Information received from the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System unit of the office of the accountant general of the federation indicates delay in the processing of funds salaries which implies that there will be a delay in payment of November salaries,” Mr Usman said.
