The Plateau State Government yesterday commenced payment of workers in 17 councils who suffered the no-work-no-pay policy of former governor, Jonah Jang.

Jang had  in 2014 refused to pay workers four months’ salaries when they went on strike in protest over non-implementation of payment of their minimum wage during the period.

Mr Paul Seku, Chairman, Plateau Central Zone Committee on Payment of No-work-no-pay for Local Government Staff, disclosed this during the committee’s visit to the Chairman of Pankshin Local Government.

“We are in this council today to commence the payment of the No-work-no-pay to all the local government staff of this council and the remaining four local governments within the Plateau Central Zone including, Mangu, Bokkos, Kanke and Kanam. This is in fulfillment of the promise made to the staff by our loving Governor Simon Lalong, when he asked the workers to withdraw the court case in Abuja for amicable settlement,” Sheku said.

Sheku, who is also the Director General, Plateau Debt Management Committee, explained that the verification would give the committee the opportunity to pay one month out of the four months owed the workers in cash. According to him, “after this payment, the remaining three months salaries will be paid to them through their accounts in their various banks.’’

Responding, Mrs Naomi Golmwen, Chairman, Pankshin Local Government, expressed happiness over the magnanimity of Governor Lalong. (NAN)
