FG moves to address emerging salary challenges

The National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSWIC) says it is poised to build the capacity of its staff to tackle emerging wage challenges.

NSWIC chairman Ekpo Nta said this while signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the commission and the National Centre for Technology Management (NACETEM) on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said signing the document would go a long way in ensuring specialised training modules for the commission in data gathering, research methodology and analytical tools.

According to him, one of the ways for the commission to be abreast of emerging trends concerning its mandate is to reinvent itself.

“The collaboration that culminated in the signing of this MoU started in 2020 when we received a proposal from NACETEM requesting participants for the training they organise. Thereafter we met with the NACETEM zonal team to work out specialised training module for the commission,” Mr Nta explained.

He added, “The meeting led to a capacity-building exercise for 55 staff in the operation and other support departments in NSIWC. We followed this up with further training for staff of the commission in Akure in 2021 and in Abuja in 2022.”

The wages commission boss said the MoU would help exchange ideas, concepts and training manuals. He further said it would help with sharing data for research purposes, among other things.

Mr Nta said government agencies needed to collaborate to deliver on their mandates better.
