Lamentations as Ortom pays December salary in March

Written By Idoma Television on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 | 11:54:00 PM

Benue workers have lamented the paucity of salary payment in the state.

The workers who only began receiving their salary for December 2015 this week, also expressed displeasure that even the arrangement of paying one month salary every two months entered into by the government and their union leaders was not being adhered to.
Speaking to our correspondent, a cross section of workers expressed similar opinions as captured by one of them, Mr Charles Angor, ” you can imagine how we are surviving. Since before Christmas, this is our first salary and we don’t know when next we will be paid”.

It was gathered that apart from strike-prone workers such as lecturers of Benue State University and staff of its Teaching Hospital whose salaries are up to date, other workers in the state are owed upwards of 3-4 months salaries.

The government however have blamed their inability to pay salaries on the dwindling revenue allocation to the state due to falling oil prices.
