Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has warned against the purported plan of the Federal Government to slash the salaries of civil servants.
Recall that the Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the salaries committee to review payroll and also review the number of agencies.
She stated that this move is to cut the cost of governance in the country.
Reacting to the development, the former lawmaker from Kaduna expressed that cutting civil servants salaries will result to the death of the national minimum wage.
Cutting Civil Servant Salaries amounts to federal funeral for the National minimum wage.
