Cross River workers receive early salary boost

25 June 2015, 09:14 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Cross River State Governor, Prof Ben Ayade, has directed that civil servants in the state be paid not later than Friday.

Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tina Banku Agbor, disclosed the development.

She said development was in line with the governor’s commitment to ensuring prompt payment of salaries to workers in the state.

“The gesture is in keeping with Governor Ayade’s commitment to ensuring prompt payment of salaries to all categories of the state’s work force on the 25th of every month. Regular and timely payment of wages to workers will among others, enhance their welfare with the overall objectives of promoting efficiency and productivity in the civil service,” Agbor said.

She said the governor urged the workers to reciprocate government’s good intention by upholding good work ethics and adherence to rules and regulations of civil service in the state.

He also called on the workers to be creative at all times in the discharge of their duties, Agbor stated.

Cross River State is one of the few states in the country that has paid its workers’ salaries up to date despite its lean financial status.
