The OAGF said the delay "in the payment of wages is due to the unexpected blockade in the country, which led to the late submission of variations by the agencies involved and the need to accommodate their inputs on the April payroll accordingly".

It was alleged that the April 2020 salaries for military and paramilitary personnel were postponed "as a result of the incapacity and inexperience of the operators of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS)".
