The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria has threatened to embark on an indefinite strike to protest the non-payment of their N200bn promotion and salaries and death benefits.
The National Executive Council of the ASCSN, which took the decision during its meeting in Abuja also decided to picket the Ministry of Finance and the Budget Office, which the workers believed were subverting the express directives of the President to release funds to pay several arrears owed them.
The decision of the National Executive Council of the association was read to journalists by its Federal Capital Territory Secretary, OJEMHENKA ISAAC.
He said the money approved by the National Assembly to pay the arrears was diverted to pay contractors for unknown projects.
The President of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, BALA KAIGAMA, who doubles as the President of the Trade Union Congress, told journalists after the meeting that the body would collaborate with the NLC to carry out the planned industrial action.
