Governor Babagana Zulum has released the salaries of workers in the state for the month of April to enable them to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fast with joy and bliss.

Zulum’s media team in a statement explained that the payment which is consistent with how the Governor has operated in nearly four years is to enable workers to prepare for the eid-ul-fitr (sallah) cel­ebrations expected to hold by the weekend.

The media team confirmed that workers across the state have started receiving credit alerts.

“Governor Zulum has al­ways argued that payment of salaries does not count as achievement since salaries are debts owed workers for their services, as such, the governor has never defaulted on monthly payment of sal­aries and pensions while he has released over N20 billion to clear gratuities owed retired workers”, the media team said.

The statement explained that while salaries in Bor­no State have mostly been paid between 25th and 26th of every month, Zulum has regularly approved early payments done between 15th and 17th of affected months, to enable preparation for spe­cial occasions such as sallah and Christmas festivals.

“Governor Zulum wishes all Muslims in Borno State a spiritually fulfilling, joyous and memorable eid-el-fitr celebration”, the statement added.

This comes days after Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi also approved the payment of April salary to civil servants in the state, with immediate effect.

The approval was contained in a statement signed by the Acting Head of Service, Safiyanu Garba-Bena, and made available to reporters in Birnin Kebbi.

He said that the gesture was to enable civil servants and pensioners to celebrate the forthcoming Sallah festival with ease.

According to the acting head of service, banks have already started releasing salary alerts to workers in line with the governor’s directive.
