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.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
