The Zamfara State chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, have commended the state government under the leadership of Governor Dauda Lawal for the payment of April and May salaries.
This was disclosed in a press statement jointly signed by the state NLC chairman, Comrade Sani Haliru, and his TUC counterpart, Comrade Saidu Mudi.
According to the statement, “In what can be termed as responsible leadership, in less than a month of taking the affairs of the state, the present administration of Dr Dauda Lawal has salvaged the workers by paying the backlog salaries.
“However, the NLC and TUC leaderships of the organized labour in the state urged the state government to also extend the same action to the remaining workers of some ministries that are yet to receive their March salary.
“We also wish to call on the state government to ensure timely payment of workers salary as well as pensions and other welfare packages for effective service delivery.”
