Niger cuts salary of civil servants, political appointees
In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mary Noel Berje, Bello described the situation as unfortunate, especially now that the economy is hitting hard on people due to recession.
The governor added that the government’s decision is temporary, and hopefully soonest, the situation will improve.
Bello, who attributed the shortfall to the present poor economy, pointed out that the situation is not peculiar to Niger State alone and promised that his administration will expedite action towards improving its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to complement whatever is coming from FACC.
He disclosed that he and his deputy are also affected by the salary cut.
