It is not however clear whether the existing salary scale will still be maintained or they will be revert back to be at par with other Ministries.
If this directive see the light of the day, it means the banking sector, telecommunication sector and other sectors affected by the above directives will be hit with mass exodus of staff, as it is evident that the parastatals would not be able to compete with the demand of best hands in the job market. In the Telecommunication and banking sector for instance, poaching of good hands will be the order of the day. Big companies who are already paying jumbo salaries like Globacom, MTN, Celtel are poised down to poach some highly trained and best hands of NCC, while big banks like UBA, First Bank, Union bank etc are also going to start poaching some best hands in CBN.
Also, those parastatals involved would not be in position to hire good hands since those they are regulating would be paying better salaries than them. It is certainly not good for government parastatals that are regulatory body like CBN, NCC, NNPC as those they are regulating could afford to poach their staff at any slightest opportunity, while such staff so poached would carry the knowledge of regulatory to such establishment. It certainly wont work, and if it does, it would be counter productive.
Ever ponder that we are going to start to witness the scenarios that do always play out in the Ministries in the Government agencies and parastatals that the above directive will directly affects. The era of corporate discharge of duties by this parastatals is beginning to come to an end. 100% devotion to duty as the case is presently with this agencies/parastals will fade away while the mentality and attitude of 'civil servant' will set in.
