0 60

The House of Representatives’ Committee on Police Affairs has invited the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; and the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, over the non-implementation of the 20 per cent salary increment for officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force by the Federal Government.

The Chairman of the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission, Mr Ekpo Nta; and the Director-General of the Budget Office, Ben Akabueze, are also to appear before the committee.

The Chairman of the committee, Bello Kumo, directed the committee’s clerk to write those invited on the issue during a public hearing on three bills in Abuja on Tuesday.

Kumo stated that there was the need to meet with the government officials and find out why the directive to upwardly review police remuneration had yet to be implemented.-The Punch
