The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, has announced that his salary for the month of April has been paid.
Mustapha was responding to a question as to whether the inability of the banks to work to full capacity as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown will affect payment of salaries for workers as April winds down during the Presidential Task Force press briefing for Monday.
“As I am speaking with you now, I have received my alert. So there’s no issue of whether the banks will pay or not. As a public servant, I have received my own alert,” he said.
The official lockdown as announced by President Muhammadu Buhari has entered the 28th day, and a good number of Nigerians have cried out for want of food and basic daily requirements.
Buhari is expected to brief the nation tonight on the way forward.
