FG Slashes Salaries Of Airport Workers

- Advertisment -

The Federal Government has slashed the salaries of airport workers in the country, The PUNCH reports.

In a circular to staff dated May 19, 2020, the Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria said the reduction in salaries is due to airport closures occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The memo signed by FAAN General Manager, Administration, M.D. Musa, read, “This is to notify all staff that due to the dwindling revenue generation amidst COVID-19 pandemic, management may not be able to pay full salary to staff as from May 2020.

“However, as soon as revenue improves, the balance will be paid. This measure is to ensure the survival of the organisation.”

The PUNCH reports that the country’s airspace and airports, both local and international, were shut in March by the President, Muhammadu Buhari as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The President’s directive, however, permitted emergency flights such as those for medical and humanitarian purposes.

On May 6, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, announced the extension of the closure of the country’s airports and airspace by four weeks.
