Nigeria In One Minute

Workers groan as govs, aides, commissioners receive salaries

Published

Civil servants currently being owed salaries across the country have described as unfair, wicked and inhuman, situations whereby they continue to suffer with members of their families while government functionaries were allegedly being paid at the end of every month.

They specifically accused their governors of ensuring regular payment of salaries and allowances to political office holders and state legislators despite owing workers several months of salaries.

Labour leaders and civil servants in Kwara, Oyo, Ekiti, Ondo, Benue, and Kaduna states expressed these feelings during separate interviews with SUNDAY PUNCH correspondents.

In Kwara State, labour leaders said they were unhappy that government functionaries were enjoying regular monthly payments while workers were allowed to suffer.
