The staff members of the Public Complaints Commission (PCC) on Wednesday shut down the agency’s headquarters in Abuja, following the non-implementation of a new salary structure.

The workers accused the management of refusing to approve the new salary structure, hence, the need to protest its failure to fulfill the agreement reached with the management.

In a demonstration to express their dissatisfaction, the workers locked down the premises hindering its management from accessing the building.

One of the protesters told SaharaReporters that “We are agitating for a different salary structure which was approved 17 months ago without financial benefits to date. We learned that the money was appropriated for and the management staff refused to implement the new salary structure.”

The Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure (CONPASS) for the Public Complaints Commission (PCC) employees was elevated to a Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS) by the Senate.

The Senate claimed that it was an essential step to give the fight against corruption the bite it needed by the administration of then-President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, the Public Complaints Commission is known for its style of conveniently excusing itself from cases of public complaints or its services.
