President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has granted approval for a significant salary increase affecting employees of all federal tertiary institutions, slated to go into effect on January 1, 2024.
This announcement came via an official memorandum issued from the office of the Auditor-General and directed to Directors of Audit, Heads of Department, Heads of Units, and all staff members.
The decision resulted from meticulous deliberations by the Presidential Committee on Salaries during its 13th meeting. The committee considered the intricate stages of collective bargaining across various sectors, paying particular attention to the negotiations between the Federal Ministry of Education and Tertiary Institutions-based Unions.
The salary increment will apply to the following salary structures:
I. Consolidated Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Salary Structure (CONPCASS) for Academic Staff of Federal Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
II. Consolidated Tertiary Institutions Salary Structure II (CONTISS II) for non-academic Staff of Federal Universities.
III. Consolidated Tertiary Education Institutions Salary Structure (CONTEDISS) for non-Academic Staff of Federal Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
IV. Consolidated University Academic Salary Structure II (CONUASS II) for Academic Staff of Federal Universities.
Stay tuned for more updates as this development unfolds, bringing smiles to the faces of numerous educators and support staff across Nigeria’s federal tertiary institutions.
