Lagos - Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party in Rivers State, Felix Obuah, has commended Governor Nyesom Wike for commencing the payment of salaries and allowances to government workers.
It is said the workers had not been paid for months under the administration of immediate past Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
Obuah, describing Wike as “a man of his words, and a dependable leader”
recalled Wike had during his electioneering campaign assured civil servants, pensioners and other public servants in the state they would be paid.
