Edo Workers Jubilate Over Payment Of 7 Months Salary

The joy of workers of Egor local government council, Edo State, knew no bound on Monday following the payment of seven months of the 17 months owed them.



The jubilant workers commended members of the State House of Assembly for the approval and timely release of funds for the payment of the salary arrears.

President of Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Edo State chapter, Comrade Young Ilenikhena, who confirmed the development, expressed the workers’ appreciation and called on the state government to pay the remaining arrears.

Also commenting on the issue at a plenary session, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Justin Okonoboh, said the payment of the seven months salaries was as a result of a recent resolution of the House which mandated the State Government to source the sum of N366,467,000 from the Central Bank of Nigeria to pay the workers.

He assured that all categories of workers being owed in the State would be paid, just as he sued for patience on the part of affected workers as they go about their normal duties.


“With this gesture, the council workers have been paid seven months out of the 17 months salary arrears owed workers by the council,” he stated.

    2. If dem no borrow, una go complain. Dem borrow, still wahala. Abeg let them borrow to alleviate people from poverty. When the time comes they'll know how to pay back. After all na Nigerians kukuma get the money and central bank. Nobody cares where they sourced the monies from right now. Na to pay the igbese wey dem don owe since the govt has been owing them go dey their minds right now.

  2. This one na election strategy. He wants Mr. Obaseki to be the governor. So he has seen mugus on the Edo State workers. Let them continue borrowing to pay workers. At least the workers are happy for their salaries now.

  8. Nice political move only fit for the gullible.
    Election is about a month away from now. The political sepulchre has to be whitewashed so that votes can be gathered.
    I just hope the downtrodden will vote with their brains and not their stomachs.
    Salary has turned to borrowed carrot and stick to be paid back in taxes.

I wonder how the various local govt administrators and governor of the state sleep at night...they now paid 7months and made the workers look like they did them a favour by paying such..they should have tendered apology letters to all workers and promised to pay the 10months owed soonest!..
