It’s Either Mass Sack Or Salary Cut – Governor Al-Makura Tells Workers

Nasarawa State Governor, Umaru Al-Makura, has reiterated his earlier position on workers’ salaries.
The governor spoke yesterday in Lafia during the swearing-in ceremony of the newly appointed Interim Management Committee (IMC) chairmen of 11 local government areas.

‪Al-Makura, in his remark, asked the organized labour to choose between mass sack to allow implementation for the minimum wage previously enjoyed by workers or receive reduced pay.

Noting that he preferred to pay full salary, ‪Al-Makura explained that government cannot afford to do so due to the economic situation.

“We are faced with the difficult option of paying full salary and stopping all development projects and amenities,” he said.

‪Al-Makura begged the workers to adjust the hard stance and toe the line of reasoning on review of their salaries.
