Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State has directed the immediate release of N3.1billion for the continuation of the payment of 2019 workers’ gratuity and death benefits in the state.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Acting Head of Service, Alhaji Safiyanu Garba-Bena made available to the newsmen on Wednesday in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital.

“The workers comprised those from the state, 21 local government areas and Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) staff who disengaged in 2019.

“This is in line with the present administration’s policy on the general welfare of retired workers in the state,” he said.

Garba-Bena added that the payment was in addition to the earlier directive on January 17, for the release of N381.7million as the balance for state workers who retired from service in 2017 and 2018.

“The directives for the two payments are from the N6bn earlier approved by the governor, while reconciliation exercise is continuing in respect of 2020 and 2021,” the head of service said. (NAN)
