Governor of Borno State, Engr. Babagana Umara Zulum, barely 24 hours after receiving the monthly allocation late last night, Thursday, 18th February 2021, from the Federal Government, has ordered the immediate payments of February salaries to all the civil servants in the state.
The governor also urges all the Banks to deliver 24 hours services and to ensure that state and local government Teachers and pensioners receive their remuneration within 24 hours starting from 6pm today till tomorrow 6pm.
His Excellency was quoted to have said “I won’t sleep with my two eyes closed whenever I receive the allocation without giving it out to the workers most especially, the teachers. And I don’t see anything special on the payments of salaries on time. This is because it’s the workers right and not a privilege.
I can’t imagine how some Governors are busy playing politics with the payments of salaries on time to the workers at all levels. This is purely inhuman”
