Nasarawa Workers Bitterly Lament Non Payment Of Salaries

Despite the Federal Government bailout last year, salaries of workers in Nasarawa State have been slashed by between 30 and 50 percent and are still being owed for upward of four months, Vanguard authoritatively reports.

According to the Chairman of the state chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Abdullahi Adeka, “the situation is appalling, hence government delays salaries for up to four months before payment is made for one month.

“Another issue of concern is that no worker in Nasarawa State has been promoted in the last six years, no annual increment, while no attention is paid to staff development in terms of training in the last six years.”

The paper added that he said, the outstanding salaries, pensions and gratuities had not been paid, in spite of the Paris Club refund that came with a categorical instruction that the payments be effected.
