The Federal Government on Wednesday ordered the immediate payment of February salaries to assist workers wishing to travel to vote during Saturday’s rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents at the end of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, the payment of February salaries to federal workers commenced on Tuesday.

The early payment, he said is “to ease the burden off civil servants planning to travel for the elections”.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed the elections to this Saturday.

Many who travelled to their voting destinations were forced to return to their bases and there is fear among the populace that many will not return.

The Minister, who said FEC on Wednesday discussed the issue, said that it also reviewed some of the palliatives put in place to help people return to cast their votes.
