THE Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, has said that unrealistic demands by the Senior Staff Union members were responsible for the delay in the implementation of the New National Minimum Wage structures.
She said this on Monday in Abuja at the two-day “Retreat for top management staff of the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF), Manpower Development Institutes (MDIs) and Federal Training Centres (FTCs).
In her words, Winifred said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to implementing the new national minimum wage and that is why the presidential committee on the consequential adjustment arising from the minimum wage has been sitting to deliberate on it. And in fact, it has sat with the union leadership within the public service to come out with the consequential adjustment arising from the new minimum wage.
“There were a few, what I will call unrealistic demands from the unions. So as not to continue delaying the implementation of the very dear policy of Mr President, we had to go ahead and seek his approval to implement the minimum wage effective from April,” Winifred added.
