Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi OkowaGoogleSpeaking with our correspondent, an elated employee of the local government, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said,"After SaharaReporters' story, barely two days later, our HMP, Pastor Obukowho, started running helter-skelter. He was so troubled and restless. And before we knew what was happening, some of us whom he had refused to pay, were called and our January salaries were given to us in cash.
"We always received our salaries promptly but immediately the tenure of the local government chairman, Emmanuel Egbabor, ended on January 7, 2021, and our HPM stepped in as sole administrator pending when council polls will be conducted on March 6, he refused to pay us our January salaries. He connived with some officials in the council to embezzle the money." headtopics.comRead more: Sahara Reporters »
