The Acting Chairman, National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission, Ekpo Nta, Esq. has called on Ministries Department and Agencies to study the Act establishing the Commission to understand that the functions of the Commission are far beyond the request for salary review.
He said the statutory functions are much more and include income analysis; job evaluations and grading, measuring productivity, relativity and manning levels, salary inspection, price monitoring, and other trends across the regional groups.
Ekpo Nta Esq. clarified when he played host to Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN) in a courtesy visit led by its president, Professor Ken Ozoilo.
He called on them to make the interaction frequently for more robust collaboration and informed them that the Commission is planning a National Conference across the geopolitical zones where various issues bordering on the National Minimum Wage will be discussed.
The Acting Chairman urged his guests to articulate all their requests in a position paper for a better and coordinated discussion since such a method would also be evaluated by a Presidential Committee on Salaries recently set up by Mr. President.
