The report presented at the house plenary indicated that three local governments of Gombi, Girei and Yola North were yet to implement the minimum wage.
The report showed that the 21 local governments were owing workers salaries and leave grants ranging between five to one months, adding that fund received by the councils for the past two years ” is substantially reasonable to have avoided non-payment of staff salaries and other entitlements.”
The report also said that some 772 staff were ill-treated by completely omitting their names from payroll of five local governments.
The report went ahead to recommend that the local governments yet to implement the minimum wage should do so with immediate effect while those owing salaries should design modalities for paying the outstanding salaries within three months.
It also recommended among others that Local Government Service Commission should investigate the circumstances surrounding the omission of 772 from the payroll of Ganye, Jada, Song, Hong and Numan local governments.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
