Plateau State Civil Servants ‘Assured’ of Stable Salaries and Emoluments
Civil servants in Plateau State have been informed that government is working hard on its obligations, with assurance to settle their salaries and other emoluments in the state.
The governor, Barr Simon Lalong, disclosed this, while on inspection tour of the renovation work going on at the Joseph Gomwalk Secretariat on Tuesday. He said there was need for the workers to reciprocate by showing dedication and commitment to duty for the progress of the state.
He earlier called on contractors handling the ongoing renovation work to hasten up so as to enable those ministries that had left their offices (for the renovation) to come back and be comfortable, in a more conducive working atmosphere.
The governor was received by the Head of Service, Mr Izang Atang Azi, who took him round to see the ongoing work in some of the ministries.
He said, “I will continue inspecting the renovation work until it’s being completed; I will not be tired in supervising it, because it’s very important to me; It is when my workers are comfortable that work will go on comfortable,” he emphasised.
Those ministries being renovated include: Education, Information Women Affairs, Youths and Sports, Finance and Health – for the first phase. It would be recalled that the renovation work started during the administration of Governor Jonah Jang.
Welcoming the governor, the Head of Service told him that staff of some of the ministries were scattered within the town for lack of offices, adding that, the sooner the renovation is being completed, the better for the workers.
The governor also visited the ministry of Justice, Commerce and Agriculture.
