The Federal Government has revealed that workers will start receiving their January salaries from Thursday evening (today).
The Accountant General of the Federation attributed the delay to a glitch from the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIFMIS) platform.
The delayed payment of January salaries for federal workers had raised concerns.

It was attributed to the Office of Accountant-General of the Federation’s non-completion of the 2024 appropriation on the GIFMIS platform.
A memo from the bursary department of the National Mathematics Centre, Abuja, titled “Delay in the payment of January 2024 Salary,” was issued to inform all staff of this situation.
The memo referenced NMC/BUR/GC/Vol.1, and was signed by the acting Bursar, Pius Ukwah, who said, “We wish to inform you that January 2024 salaries will be delayed beyond normal”.
“As of today, the OAGF is still working on finalising the 2024 appropriation on the GIFMIS platform and as a result, the personnel warrant for January is yet to be released”.
The memo which copied the Director/CE, the Registrar and pasted on all notice boards stated further, “The same situation applies to all MDAs and not just the centre. We regret the inconvenience caused by this delay.”
The Director Press and Public Relations at the Office of the Accountant General, Bawa Mokwa, said the issue had been sorted out and payment would commence today.
“We have sorted out the issue and workers will start receiving their payment from this Thursday evening,” he said.
