Gov. Zulum of Borno rules out payment of salary as an achievement

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno says he he does not consider payment of salaries and pensions as an achievement. The governor said the payment of salaries is a debt to workers who have served the state. He, however, advised workers in the state that they must also be up and doing so that they can earn their wages. The governor’s comment was contained in a statement sent to journalists by Isa Gusau, his special adviser on public relations and strategy. His words: “I have never considered payment of workers’ salaries as achievement but rather as payment of debt, in this case, government paying for the services rendered by law-abiding civil servants who signed contracts with the government as employees to work for hours, days and weeks and be paid for their work at the end of the month. “The workers are in government debt when they work, and the government pays that debt by paying salaries. “Payment of debt is never an achievement, it is an obligation and this why we ensure that before the 26th of every month, workers and pensioners get paid.”
