The Imo State Government is set to pay three months outstanding salaries with the recent federal government bailout fund made available to the state government.

During an interactive session with civil servants in the state at the conference hall of the Imo Trade Centre, in Owerri the Imo State capital, the state Governor, Mr. Rochas Okorocha, expressed dissatisfaction over the actions of the workers through series of protests and strikes.

He stressed that it is a known fact that his administration has never owed any worker since its inception and the circumstances surrounding this is a national issue and not peculiar to Imo State.

The governor said as a way of showing his love for civil servants in the state, he approved one month post payment of salaries in addition to the 2-3 months being owed by the state government.

While commending the governor for his intervention in the plight of workers in the state, the Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Imo State, Mr. Austin Chilakpu told the governor that their agitations is neither political nor personal but it is for the betterment of Imo workers, adding that the workers in the state will continue to support the Okorocha-led administration.

Meanwhile, Governor Okorocha has inaugurated the committee to handle the payment of the salaries headed by the Chief Staff to the Imo State Government, Mr. Uche Nwosu. (Channels TV)
