State Workers To Receive Half Salaries


imageImo state government through the office of the head of service, Mr Callistus Ekenze, has issued a new salary structure that is causing uproar among the workers in the state.

The announcement that 50% will be removed from workers’ salaries is stirring a labour war.

The new salary table reversed salaries and allowances of judicial staff, health workers and that of the agricultural sector staff attached to ministries. Salaries and allowances of ministries like justice, agriculture and health that were already scheduled were returned to the directors of accounts for fresh computations to reflect the new salary table

It was reported that Governor Rochas Okorocha instructed the director of accounts to complete the computation today and submit the salary schedule for payment.

The workers lamented that their hazard, outfit, legislative and other incentives that they had enjoyed in the past had been removed. They were said to have confronted Chief Acho Ihim, the speaker but they were advised to handle the issue amicably

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party had earlier told Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo that cutting their salaries was not the only thing Nigerians were expecting from them.
