Reports that Kogi Workers received full salaries in February, is fake- NLC clarifies


 

The Kogi State Chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, says reports making the round that Kogi State Government led by Alhaji Yahaya Bello, paid workers their full salaries for the month of February, is fake news.

 

The NLC in reaction to reports credited to the State Chairman, Comrade Onuh Edoka, that no percentage salary was paid to Kogi State workers in February, said the mission of the report, was to set the workers of the state against the leadership of the Organized Labour.

 

The Organized Labour in a statement signed by the State Secretary, Comrade Paul Omale and sent to Our Kogi State Correspondent, today, Tuesday March 22, noted that the NLC Chairman did not grant any interview or issued a press statement to any media house, telling the world that, Kogi State Government paid full salary to workers.

 

Omale, averred that the Organized Labour in the State, was amazed on how some reputable media houses, could be used to publish, “such an untrue and misleading story”.

 

"On the issue of the percentage salaries paid in the month of February, the State Government, through the Commissioner for Finance, Asiwaju Ashiru, issued press statement to explain what necessitated the payment of February salary in percentages, with a promise that the balance will be paid in the preceding month for state civil servants.

 

"The Local Government Councils, also paid percentages to workers at that level. How can the NLC Chairman, Edoka turn around to confirm that no percentage salary was paid, when the government had through a press release by the Commissioner for Finance, offered explanation for the percentage salaries paid in the state", the statement explained.

 

He called on civil servants in the state, to ignore the publication as it was done by mischief makers to cause disaffection between the workforce and the leadership of the Organized Labour.
