04 July 2016, 21:08

Abuja - Imo State Governor, Rochas Okochora has granted worker's salaries for the month of April, May and June to be paid out before July 8 2016, Punch reported.

This order came after a meeting was held at the Government House with other stakeholders consisting of treasurers, permanent secretaries and other relevant stakeholders.

Okochora has warned that this would be the last time workers are owed their salaries in the state.

To speed things up, the governor set up a committee to monitor the prompt payment of salaries. This means that workers would be paid their salaries on the 10th of every month.

Directors of Accounts in the Ministries and Local Governments will be meeting up with Accountant-General of the state to sort out salary issues in the state.

TheNation reports that the governor warned that anybody that is found to be playing pranks with salaries belonging to workers will be dealt with.
