Kogi State Commissioner for Finance, Asiwaju Idris Ashiru on Saturday in Lokoja, disclosed that Civil Servants in Kogi State will start receiving full salary payment with effect from the end of September 2020.
Asiwaju Ashiru who gave the assurance while speaking with newsmen in Lokoja explained that the eighty percent payment was due to the short fall in the allocation from the Federal Government as a result of the fall in the prices of crude oil.
According to him the development in the past five months was in cognisance of the Organised Labour in the State to sustain industrial harmony.
Ashiru who said the State Government had been prudent in the management of available resources added that government would embark on projects in the health sector towards the well being of citizens.
The Commissioner reiterated the commitment of the Governor Yahaya Bello-led administration to the welfare of Civil Servants and overall development of the State.
It would be recalled that Kogi government started paying 80 percent salary to its civil servants since April 2020.
