“The union is particularly very happy about that because it has justified all our fights over the years that the salaries of NPA workers should be increased after 18 years. You know in the last 18 years, no NPA staff salary was increased due to some policies of the government that limited NPA management from increasing salaries until sometime last year when we waded into it through the efforts of the NPA MD and other well-meaning Nigerians and the issue of the review was visited. So, the union is very happy,” he said.
The Minister of Transportation, Sambo Mu’azu Sambo, announced the government’s decision to raise the salaries of NPA employees over the weekend at the authority’s long service award.
Sambo, who praised the agency’s management for its dedication to employee welfare, singled out the NPA’s CEO, Mohammad Bello-Koko, for special recognition for his unprecedented performance in revenue generation and remittances.JAMB portal

Sambo, however, congratulated the awardees and the entire staff of NPA for their commitment.
