Workers/Govt Feud: Al-Makura approves payment of 2months salary

The lingering feud between the organised labour and the Nasarawa State gov­ernment is gradually winding down, following government’s latest decision to pay 2months salary to workers” in order to broker industrial harmony in the state.
 
Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, who made the pro­nouncement of paying two months salary to workers when the leaders of the state Organised labor visited his office in Lafia on thursday, said as far as he was concern there was nothing like strike ongoing in his state as gov­ernment remains unhindered on its operations.
 
He went on assured that gov­ernment will take seriously look for better ways at which all the four demands of workers before him would be met. While he di­rected the state head of service to with immediate effect begin the processes of conducting pro­motion exams for promotion of workers.
 
He also directed the State head of service and other authori­ties responsible for payment of workers salaries to swing into ac­tions that will fast track the pay­ment of the two months salary owe to workers, which he said must materialise before the end of this month.
 
On the issues of the pending local government emoluments, he said plans will soon be per­fected in that regards. Meanwhile he reiterated his administration commitment towards payment of pensions and graduity, saying that concerted efforts are being made as government released over N300million recently to settle pensioners in the state.
