The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to pay the outstanding salaries of thousands of civil servants in the country.
The ASCSN also said that there is anger and hunger in the land due to the state of the economy.
It made the comments via a statement released by Secretary-General, Alade Bashir Lawal.
The statement reads:
“We believe that since these federal civil servants and their dependents live in different parts of the country, if these outstanding entitlements are paid to them, it will have positive ripple effects on the economy and douse the tension in the land.”
“There is anger and hunger in the country and as a patriotic trade union organisation, we have decided to bring this situation to the notice of government so that it can take necessary measures to stem the tide by doing the needful.”
Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose and Archbishop Emeritus, Cardinal Anthony Okogie have also urged Buhari to take note of the hunger in the land.
