The Nasarawa State Governor, Umaru Al-Makura, has said his administration owes the state’s civil servants only one month’s salary.
Al-Makura, who said this while declaring open a five-day workshop for senior workers, explained that reports that his government owed six months’ salary was false.
According to him, the reports were aimed at tarnishing the image of his government.
The governor said, “My government does not owe civil servants now. But I know I owe them only one month’s salary, which will be paid very soon.”
He added that the decision of the government to engage the service of Industrial Training Fund was in line with the focus of his administration’s policy since inception in 2011.
He noted that the government would also redeploy some directors to classrooms, since some of them were rarely engaged.
The governor further said his government had effected over 9,000 civil servants’ promotions with full salary and other entitlements in the state, and promised to add about 2,000 civil servants to the workforce.
