Public Complaints Commission shuts down over non payment of Salaries
Offices of Nigeria’s ombudsman, the Public Complaints Commission, PCC, have been shut down nationwide because the commission cannot pay full salaries of its workers.
The commission, which was created to address complaints by aggrieved citizens or residents in Nigeria against administrative injustice, has for almost a year battled neglect by government, resulting in poorly paid salaries.
Earlier, the commission had slashed workers salary by 50% Both overheads, capital and everything.
A staff at the commission Said it is no longer funny that they can no longer pay their children’s school fees. They pay us only about 40 per cent or sometimes 50 per cent and thereabouts of our salaries.
