Kogi: Labour demands N2.8bn outstanding workers’ salary

Chairman of the Kogi chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Onuh Edoka, has said that the state government was yet to release

He said that despite the use of the N30.8 billion bailout for the settlement of salaries by the state government, the union “stands aside” until government fulfil agreements it entered into with labour, adding that the government was yet to release the 10 percent to offset arrears of workers’ salary.

“Ten percent of the money was reserved to tackle arrears of months when percentage salary were paid to the state workers.

“The percentage payment to council workers was carried out by some of his appointees who are working internally to bring down the government. They have turned local government areas to their handbag, which they carry about, and pick what they want”, he added.
