Executive Chairman, National Salaries, Incomes and Wages

Commission Richard Egbule, has said the commission had not revised

the supplementary allowances.

Egbule, who disclosed this in a statement by Emma Njoku, the Chief

Press Secretary of the commission in Abuja, said any indication of such

was false.

Egbule said there was a fake circular in circulation alleging that the

supplementary allowance payable to security personnel attached to

political, public and judicial office holders had been reviewed.

According to the statement, the fake circular alleged that the commission

has revised the supplementary from N50,000 to N120,000 per month for

officers and from N30,000 to N100,000 per month for other ranks.

He added that the commission’s circular dated November 1, 2017, which

conveyed government’s approval for the payment of supplementary

allowance of N50, 000 per month for officers and N30,000 per month

for other ranks of security personnel, had not been revised.

He called on Ministries, Departments and Agencies to disregard the fake

circular and any payments already made or intended to be made.
