Niger state government has refuted media reports that the state had not paid June 2018 workers’ salaries, claiming that they had paid since June 13 to ensure civil servants enjoyed Eid-el-Fitr.
A statement by the Commissioner of Information, Danjuma Salau yesterday stated that, “Contrary to what was indicated in the report, Niger State government under the leadership of Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello had never owed workers’ salary since the inception of the administration on May 29, 2015”.
According to him, “governor Sani-Bello has continuously re-echoed his commitment to welfare of workers and has practically demonstrated that, through prompt payment of salary in the state despite economic challenges”.
“Indeed, Niger is a shining example of a state that has remained committed to and consistent with the welfare of its workers. In that wise, Governor Sani-Bello has placed workers salary on first-line charge. It has remained so and will remain so,” he added.
He stated that Governor Sani-Bello’s commitment and consistency has been applauded by all stakeholders in and outside the state including elder statesman, members of the media, organised private sector, labour unions, religious organisations among others.
Salau, stated that during 2018 May Day Celebration, Chairman, Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Yahaya Ndako Idris commended Gov Sani-Bello for prompt payment of salary in the state.
Consequently, he stated: “We use this opportunity to plead with our colleagues to always cross-check facts before publication ,especially in this age of social media where such factual errors, when shared on various platforms go viral with damaging effects.”
