Outstanding wages for pay employees-APC Tells Bauchi GovtOutstanding wages for pay employees-APC Tells Bauchi Govt

On Thursday, the opposition All Progressive Congress ( APC) in Bauchi State told the state government that there is no reason for delaying the wages of workers, and as such called on it to pay their unpaid wages immediately.
This was contained in a press release signed today in Bauchi by the publicity secretary of the party, Adamu Jallah, and made available to journalists.

According to the party, prompt payment of wages is the right of employees, adding that there is no excuse for the government to withhold certain civil servants’ salaries for more than three months.

It added that the state government has no excuse not to pay more so that it is distributed monthly  from the Federal Government.

“While sympathizing with the affected civil servants who were not paid for many months, we call on the government to hasten and settle their outstanding salaries because it is their rights.

“The governor has no justification to withhold their salaries when he collects the monthly federal allocations,” the opposition party stated.

The party said it still owes employees, given the fact that the state government saved money from suspending those activities as a result of COVID-19 outbreak.

“It is a known fact that a lot of activities have been paralyzed since the outbreak of COVID-19 nationwide, such as Ramadan feeding, school feeding, sponsorship of hajj operations, among other things.

“But yet the PDP-led government is not able to pay salaries of some workers in the past couple of months even though money was saved from the suspension of the aforementioned activities.

“It is worthy to note that the state has continued to receive its monthly allocations from the Federal Government but yet it could not provide fertilizer this farming season.”

The APC further criticized the ongoing verification of civil servants in the state since the government ‘s inception, saying the exercise is not producing any results as many ghost workers are the daily.

The State Commissioner for Finance, Umar Sanda Adamu, said in a swift reaction that the delay in paying the salaries of the affected civil servants is not the responsibility of the State Government.

Adamu told the consultants in charge of the payment that the delay is caused by technical hitches.
