FG Spends N165b Monthly On Salary, Pensions – Adeosun

MinistersThe Federal Government spends at least N165 billion every month on salaries and pensions of federal civil servants, the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, disclosed on Thursday.
Mrs. Adeosun, however, said the government is working very hard to reduce the bill through the ongoing implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) which had already uncovered many ghost workers.
The Finance Minister spoke in Lagos alongside three other Ministers at a meeting with members of Newspaper Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria (NPAN).
Other ministers present at the meeting were Alhaji Lai Mohammed (Information and culture), Chief Audu Ogbe (Agriculture and Rural Development), and Mrs. Amina Mohammed (Environment).
