The governor of Ebonyi State, Francis Nwifuru, has announced an increase in the salaries of civil servants in the state by N10,000.

Bellnewsonline.com reports that the announcement was made in a statement signed by the governor and posted on his verified Twitter handle.

Nwifuru said that the increase was approved by the State Executive Council (EXCO) at its meeting on July 13, 2023.

He said that the increase was in line with his administration’s commitment to improving the welfare of civil servants.

Nwifuru also announced that EXCO had approved the employment of 1,454 new civil servants into the state’s civil service.

The statement reads:


The State Executive Council Meeting of July 13, 2023 received a report from the Head of Service on areas we need to employ Ebonyians into various Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of the State Civil Service.

Accordingly, EXCO has approved the employment of 1,454 Ebonyians into the State Civil Service. Additionally, EXCO has as well approved the increase of salaries of our Civil Servants by Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000.00), each.

The governor’s announcement comes at a time when civil servants across the country are facing increasing financial hardship due to the removal of fuel subsidy.

The removal of fuel subsidy by the Bola Tinubu-led federal government has led to a sharp increase in the price of petrol, which has in turn led to an increase in the prices of other goods and services.
