About 144,766 federal civil servants under the Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure will benefit from the new 40 per cent peculiar allowance introduced by the Federal Government.

This implies that other workers under the employment of the Federal Government but operating under different salary structures will not benefit.

For instance, university workers, who are under the Consolidated University Academic Salary Structure, and medical doctors, who work for the Federal Government, will also not benefit from the pay rise as they are under the Consolidated Medical Salary Scale.

Other categories of federal workers who will not benefit from the peculiar allowance are nurses, non-academic workers in tertiary institutions, the police and members of the armed forces, among others.

This approval takes effect from 1st of January, 2023 and the estimated sum N79.37 billion per annum required to implement it for the staff on CONPSS will be funded from the treasury.
ASUU, however, protested the exclusion of its members from the payment of the peculiar allowance.

ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, accused the government of trying to create problems in the system, adding that ASUU would study the situation on the ground and make its stand known soon.
