Cross River Civil Servants Protest Early Salary Payment

Civil servants in Cross River State on Friday condemned the decision of the state governor, Ben Ayade, to pay their December salary on the first day of the month.


Our correspondent learned that some civil servants had on December 1 received alerts for the month’s salary, as against the 25th of every month.

It would be the second time that workers would be receiving salaries on the first day of the month as they had in May 2016 got a similar gesture from the governor in commemoration of the Workers’ Day celebration.


The aggrieved workers said the decision to pay their salaries in advance would later cause untold hardship as the Yuletide approaches.

A top civil servant in the Ministry of Environment, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The state government’s decision to pay December salaries of some civil servants within the first three days of the month will make us suffer in due course.

“The government should have employed caution by delaying December salary payments to a later date. Our governor may want to score a political point with this payment, but I think that those of us receiving this money stand to lose fiscally when January comes.”

But one of the governor’s aides, who pleaded anonymity, said the workers should applaud the governor instead of complaining.

The source said, “People are so impossible to please. There are states in this country where salaries are not paid as and when due, but in Cross River State, our governor pays salaries and even pays ahead to cater for special occasions like the Workers’ Day and this Yuletide.

“Instead of applauding him, some people say he shouldn’t have paid. Nigerians are difficult to please.''

Punch



*Shuo na wah oh...I think what they mean is that by the time Christmas comes they will be broke again..I dont think i like this method at all becausebefore the next month end,it might not balance up

Stella exactly... Even Ayade wouldn't like it.

They should leave it in the account and assume they have not been paid. Human beings cannot be satisfied. What some are praying for. They do not even know if the man was planning on 13h month for them. Ingrates. Some havent received salaries in 4 months. Nonsense

When some states have not received salaries since February.

Bianca BRUNO said...

Ah Stella you are up already. You are really a hard worker. Kudos and happy Sunday.
And yes even though I haven't been paid Nov salary as a civil servant I still don't like the early Dec payment becos by Jan end they will have no money to spend..in fact by Dec end Sef unless the person knows how to tight belt like me.

Stella biko you are not a civil servant, imagine the rubbish they are saying, getting things at the market this period will be cheaper compared to end of the month and money can be save for perishable items like soup ingredients, are they kids? can't they save? must they spend all their money at once? I'm so vexing, what kinda political point? Is it easy to score such political point? They should come to my state, 5 months salaries have not been paid, do they prefer that? I'm sure those complaining does not have kids to buy clothes and every other things for.

Maduneme Emmanuel said...

And they don't know some states don't even plan on paying their workers, so it means they can't save or something, why are humans difficult to please.

Must they spend the money? Nigerians are really difficult to please. You don't pay salary they complain, you pay salary they still complain. Nigerians are very undisciplined and have no self control. If they are disciplined and have self control, they will not spend the money if they don't want or have to. Now they want government to help them manage their bank accounts and expenditure.

Nigerian Burger said...

It's not fair now. In this recesion you choose to pay someone at the start of the month?

Esther Okoro said...

He paid them too early. Before the end of this month some of them will be broke. They have a good governor.




God Bless Everyone.

Dr. Pinch said...

Na wa oo if them pay una problem, if them no pay una bigger problem. You guys should visit Osun state.

Na Me Talk Am!!! said...

Nigerians can never be satisfied. Isn't it better to start buying things now before prices go over the roof as it usually does during Xmas celebrations? What stops them from managing the money well?

olaedo said...

Nigerians are really difficult to please, what nonsense is this? They have been paid their December salaries so they can plan themselves and they are here complaining.
Why not pretend like you have not seen alert till that 25th you are meant to be paid?
What of we that our last salary was june? Are we not Living?

Some governors will start using this as an excuse for not paying as at when due.
Planing and self control is really difficult for some people.

The Governor should start owing them from today so they can appreciate him for being fair.
Rubbish!!

That Santa post I missed is paining me o. It's not fair

Please these people need to go and sit down joor!!! Look at other states that the workers have not been paid for months and they are trying to survive. If the govt doesn't give them their salaries they protest. Now they are getting their salaries a little early they are still complaining. They to have a plan on how to use the money, maybe start planning for Christmas early. At least they have been paid.

Villager said...

I condamn sosh decition too. Befour 25ift, the wokers may ve litle or no moni left to sostain them true out the season.
So Mr Gov, to me, i sea no comon sence in this cus airly to bird, airly to rice.

This season ain't time to lark moni atol.

corisande said...

lmao! He was trying to impress them na.
I stand with the workers jare. It came to early, and it will go early

Madea said...

I would think that early payment would enable them facilitate preparations for the yuletide and buy things in earnest to forestall yuletide inflation of prices.

After all, the 13th month salary is paid in November by well meaning companies and people don't complain but welcome it.

Cross Riverians are confused. So they want to collect Dec salary on Christmas day? Mschew!

Princess Scheherazade said...

Of course, the tendency would be to spend it all by Christmas. Then by the first week in January, they'd be broke.

What they need to do now would be to save most of the money for use in January.

The governor is trying to score cheap points though. It's unheard of, paying a worker for work that he hasn't done, without even being asked.
It's not like he even paid mid month... First of the month!
I mean, they'd probably still have their November salaries.
Policies and procedures are there for a reason.

OliviaSilk said...

Hian.
Nobody should try that with me o.
In fact I like receiving my salary on the 2nd to 3Rd day of the next month. Ie pay me November salary on 3rd December. I like it like that.

Sir Ayade as much as I like you, it's too early biko. It should have been 20th-23rd December.

Well when i have just one girlfriend and i do everything to please and worship her yet she's not pleased so not just expecting one man to please a whole state. I doubt if you have a bank in your state cos if you think you will spend your salary before month end tell a bank to place a NO DEBIT on your account or invest on MMM. Idiot people

These are unserious workers.

Pffft said...

If you are financially responsible, it doesn't matter when the money comes in-1st day or last day of the month.

You will still manage it wisely.

Pipi Lee said...

Lol...exactly.
Let them withdraw it and invest in MMM.

Lepa shandy is back said...

I dey tell you. Maybe he is planning 13 month and they are there crying for nothing.

Mama fifty said...

Please,Gov Ayade forgive them,they are ingrates,instead of them to appreciate the gov they are complaining,they're should keep their money in the bank till 1ST OF JAN.

Lepa shandy is back said...

Ewu calabar

DonMayor said...

Don't mind the useless servants. You get paid, you are complaining. What about those that are yet to receive Six months salary ? Rubbish.

DonMayor said...

Abeg tell those ingrates o.

DonMayor said...

Let them go abd spend all the salary before the end of the month. Shebi dem be ta-ta.

Useless mofos complaining for getting December salary early why some are yet to receive the one of June.

Inimitable said...

Ungrateful idiots. Even those working in the federal government have not gotten their Nov salary and those you received theirs; it was slashed, some by almost half. If they don't want to spend the money, why not kuku save it in the bank or use it and do mmm others are doing. They are so annoying. That is how people make devils out of angels. Ozu nwa bekee!!!

DonMayor said...

I tell you, If I be this man. I will make sure they didn't get paid till March.. Lol

Mrs. Romas said...

I support the idea of early salary payment during festive period because it will help them to even save more. They can buy all the food stuff at home before the price hike.

They should be pleased that the State government put their welfare into thought. Why are they even complaining? It shows they're not self discipline when t comes to money.

Omasiri said...

Nice gesture from Ben Ayade. They should be disciplined in their spending habit and invest. More importantly,get some non perishable items now against the xmas.

SANDY NEKY said...

No Becky in this case, its damn early. If you are a civil servant, thats when you will understand. Not fair unless he wants to surprise them by paying 13th month at the end of this month if not; them go hear am before end of January. So so borrowing..kai!

Mosi Jubelo said...

That is why you should plan. Is it not even better? Go and buy things cheaper now, banks would not be too crowded. It will make you plan well. It's wayyyyyyyyyyyyy better. I'll prefer getting my things now o.

I understand their points, Happy Sunday blog Fam

Nuria Precious said...

Good intention at the wrong time. Not a good one at all. He should have paid maybe as from 15th or there about not 1st is 2 early.

Benue state is not a state,its a local govt council.
The height of wickedness in Benue,even the devil marvels at it.
Good decision but been implemented at the. Wrong time.

Everything still boils down to proper planning and appropriation. I think the Gov did the right thing. Even if he pays on the 23rd as some people demand, some people will still go broke before the Christmas day. Buying the basics now is apt before the prices of things skyrocket. Well done sir.

Whirlwind said...

Human beings are really complicated.

I have stocked my house for the month so I am baffled that these adults can't plan and manage monies in their own bank accounts.

Must they wait till when the cost of rice, tomatoes etc will double in price ?? Abeg, I can't deal.

Becky Divine said...

Anonymous gone wrong! Lol

Stella..the problem with Nigerian civil/public/private workers is lack of financial discipline.
Why are they maoaning when their colleagues in other states are praying for a gesture such as this.
When as a salary earner you do not draw a budget for the month then sorry is your case.
This recession period demands strict personal budget on a list of opportunity cost as secondary school economics would say:define your want and need..hope I got that right.
Man will always remain an insatiable being...ike gwuru.
