Lockdown: Half pay for federal workers



Federal agencies have started implementing cost-cutting measures in response to the loss of revenue as a result of the prolonged lockdown of many parts of Nigeria.

The agencies sent out letters to the workers on Monday, informing them about the reduction in their salaries till things return to normal.

A memo by the General Manager, Administration, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, M.D Musa, on Tuesday informed the workers of the Akash in their salaries from May 2020.

He said the measure “is to ensure the survival of the organisation.”

He gave the assurance that the balance would be paid when the situation in the country returns to normal.

The Federal Government shut airports across the country in March as a means of combating the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only emergency and medical evacuation flights have been operating since then.
