“It’s Sad States Are Still Owing Salaries” – Federal Government

The Federal Government has asked State governments to stop blackmailing it over non-payment of workers salaries.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, gave the advice when he featured at the News Agency of Nigeria’s Forum in Abuja.

He said in spite of bailout funds and Paris Club refunds paid to states, some of them are still owing salaries.

 

He stated that the bailouts were given to the states out of concern of the Federal Government for the workers, given the level of outstanding salaries and pensions to them.

“The President is always very positively emotional when it gets to the welfare of workers and other citizens of the country.

“He has been doing whatever he can to ensure that those who are working get paid by providing the bailout because when the workers get paid, they will generate something that will also affect the unemployed.

“But, the way some governors have used it has made it very dampening,’’ he said.

He asked Nigerians to always question their governors about funds.
