The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the Federal Government had no plans to slash salaries of civil servants as alleged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), debunked the allegation in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

PDP, the leading opposition party had in a statement by its spokesman, had alleged that it got intelligence report that the Federal Government planned to slash salaries of workers due to economy downturn.

But Akpanudoedehe said, “The PDP is up to its comical tales on what it terms intelligence at its disposal to slash the salaries of workers in the country, clearly only the PDP believes its tales. We are proud of our credentials as a truly progressive and people-centred political party.”

He said rather than thinking of slashing workers’ salaries as alleged by the PDP, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government is committed to the welfare of Nigerian workers, adding that the administration had been tested and proven in this regard, saying that it would continue to match words with actions in line with the APC electoral promises.
