DQH reacts to documents being circulated on social media on a new salary structure for the AFN.
The Nigerian Army (NA) will conduct Doctrine and Combat Development Workshop for Junior Commanders.
The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has said that a new salary structure had not been approved for the members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN).
In a reaction to what it called a “fictitious document” being circulated on some social media platforms in that regard, the DHQ therefore, reiterated that the purported new salary scale for members of the AFN being circulated, is nothing but a false and malicious publication intended to cause disaffection among members of the AFN, as no such salary scale exists.
Col. Onyema Nwachukwu in a statement on Friday said the DHQ was dismayed by the circulation of the fictitious document which had gone viral on social media, purportedly showing a new upgraded AFN salary structure with effect from May 2019.
Clarify the issue. Nwachukwu said such document does not exist; neither does it reflect the true salary structure of personnel of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
Recalling that President Muhammadu Buhari, signed a new minimum wage of N30, 000 on April 18, he said hat the AFN does not approve salaries for its personnel.
He therefore urged personnel and the general public to discountenance the “fake document in its entirety’’.
