FG introduces insurance policy for civil servants

The Federal government has implemented the group life insurance policy which enables civil servants get some benefits as a result of industrial hazards and death.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Oyo-Ita made this known during the quarterly breakfast meeting with Labour Unions in Abuja.

Mrs. Oyo-Ita called on workers to take advantage of the scheme.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation expressed confidence that work is on-going on the National minimum wage for civil servants.

She said that efforts were already being made to enhance service delivery, as workers cannot perform optimally if their environment was not favourable.

She, however, urged labour leaders to fully explore the opportunity presented by this platform to resolve burning issues in order to promote industrial harmony.
