Mr Paul C Nwabuikwu, Special Adviser to the Minister of Finance in a statement yesterday that said failure to submit the approved 10 digit NUBAN account numbers by MDAs has been the major obstacle in salary delays.
“It has come to our attention that an association of senior civil servants has issued a statement protesting the non-payment of their December 2013 salaries as well as some emoluments. We are yet to see the statement but the issue of prompt salary payment is one that the Federal Ministry of Finance has prioritised for several months now”.
Nwabuikwu said the Dr Okonjo-Iweala has made it absolutely clear that prompt salary payment cannot be compromised for any reason and this has been communicated to all relevant agencies.
 “We are aware of a few delays caused by the failure of individual civil servants and their MDAs to update their account numbers to meet the requirements of the CBN approved 10 digit NUBAN account numbers and communicate same to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
But this involves pockets of civil servants, certainly not the entire senior civil servants. Any legitimate inconveniences are regretted.”
