Those complaining about unpaid salaries are not confirmed civil servants – APC chairman

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State, Comrade Abba Yaro has described those attacking the state governor, Samuel Ortom over non-payment of salaries as ghosts.

He said most of the people complaining about unpaid salaries were not confirmed civil servants.

Addressing newsmen in Makurdi on Monday, the party chieftain said, “Most of the people complaining are ghost workers. There is still 1.6 billion naira laying there unclaimed. If you bring a genuine appointment letter, your salary will be paid to you. If you are not paid after meeting these requirements, then you can hold our party responsible.”

Yaro when asked to rate the performance of Governor Ortom, expressed utmost satisfaction.

He said, “Wonderful, it is very wonderful. Governor Ortom’s administration has really done a wonderful work. He has done a lot and we have told the people of Benue to expect more before the end of his tenure.

“The electorates voted for Change and they have been given the desired change by the Ortom-led administration.” He said.

He assured that the party was ready for the forthcoming Local Government Council election, which he said will be free and fair.

“We will never perform the winners takes all magic. Anybody that is popular should go to the field and test his/her popularity. I want to state here again that the APC-led government shall conduct a credible, free and fair local government election in Benue state.

“I want to call on the people of Benue to come out and vote for candidates that will represent their interest,” he added.
