President Bola Tinubu’s administration has approved a 25% and 35% salary increase for civil servants across various consolidated salary structures.

This decision, effective from January 1, 2024, was confirmed in a statement signed by Emmanuel Njoku, the Head of Press at the National Salaries, Incomes, and Wages Commission.

The augmentation applies to six consolidated salary structures, including the Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure, Consolidated Research and Allied Institutions Salary Structure, Consolidated Police Salary Structure, Consolidated Para-military Salary Structure, Consolidated Intelligence Community Salary Structure, and Consolidated Armed Forces Salary Structure.

Additionally, pension for retirees enrolled in the Defined Benefits Scheme within these structures has been increased from 20% to 28% from the same date.

This follows the earlier salary increases in sectors such as tertiary education and health, covering structures like the Consolidated University Academic Salary Structure.
