The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor announced the approval of the payment while presenting the 2019 Appropriation Bill to the state House of Assembly.
This is the second time during the tenure of Ugwuanyi that workers in the state will receive such gesture as the same payment was made in 2017.
Nwobodo said that the gesture, coming at a time most state governors could not pay salaries, was exceptional.
“The governor promised to pay not just core civil servants, but workers in all government agencies.
“We are very grateful and we pray God to meet him at the point of his needs,” he said.
The NUJ chairman promised that workers would not take the governor’s good gesture for granted, but would reciprocate it in due time.
“We urge our members to reciprocate this gesture by being diligent and committed to their duties,” Nwobodo said. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
