Oluwatoyin Madein, the Accountant General of the Federation, stated on Tuesday that there won’t be a delay in paying federal officials’ salaries for July 2023. During the meeting with the HOS Abuja, she clarified this.

The PUNCH had previously reported that there were issues with the payment of the salary for May 2023 and June 2023.

Madein pointed out that some obstacles outside the Office of the Accountant General’s authority were to blame for the delay in May and June 2023 wages. However, she pointed out that procedures have been set up to guarantee that salaries are paid promptly.

She said, “For May and June, we experienced some challenges beyond our control, but I can assure you that everything has been put in place to ensure that salaries for July 2023 are paid immediately and without delay.”
