Despite the economic situation in the country, Bayelsa State Governor, Mr Seriake Dickson, has assured civil servants in the state of prompt payment of their salaries in 2017.

The Governor gave the assurance during a meeting with the leadership of the organized labour‎ inside the Government House Yenagoa.

He explained that his administration is not interested in owing civil servants and pensioners, and promised that their salaries would hit their accounts before the end of each month.

He, however, informed the labour leaders that should there be any development that will hamper the payment of the full salaries, he would communicate to them with necessary details, praying that such unpleasant situation does not arise.

Dickson thanked the labour leaders for their support and understanding during the period the government paid only 50% of salaries and noted that their refusal to be used by desperate politicians was the hallmark of their patriotism and loyalty to the state.

“I want to thank you; I appreciate the commitment and understanding you have shown. I am very grateful; the government is very happy with our workforce.

Let us all work together so we reposition the service for greater service delivery for people of our state.”

In his remark, the chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) John Ndiomu lauded the Governor for informing them on the latest reforms he is introducing in the civil service and expressed labour’s readiness to always collaborate with the government. (Channels TV)
