Pay us our 39-month arrears, Kogi workers tell Bello


The Kogi State council of the Nigeria Labour Congress decried to Governor Yahaya Bello that workers in the state are still being owed months of salary arrears.

NLC chairman in the state, Onuh Edoka, stated this yesterday during a meeting the labour leaders held with Bello at the Government House, Lokoja.

The meeting was scheduled to resolve grey areas on salaries. He told the governor that workers in the state were going through untold hardships due to unpaid salaries and therefore called on him to expedite action in addressing the issue in the interest of workers’ wellbeing.

Addressing the workers, Bello said modalities are being worked on to address the issue. He said his government had done much with the lean resources to develop the state. He called on the leadership of the organized labour to support his administration for more dividends of democracy.
