After much public outcry, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has paid one month salary out of the several months he is owing civil servants in the state.
It was gathered that Ortom eventually bowed to pressure on Wednesday and decided to offset just one month salary.
Confirming the development, a civil servant who gave his name as Elias (surname withheld) said some workers have started receiving alerts since Wednesday.
“Some people are yet to receive alert but the truth is he has announced payment of February salary”, he said.
Asked how workers are feeling in state, he said, “what is there to celebrate? We worked for it and we are entitled to our wages. How do one celebrate one month salary out of several months being owed?”
