I don’t consider payment of salaries an achievement — Borno Gov

1 min

Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno state, says he does not consider payment of salaries and pensions as an achievement.

Zulum was quoted as saying this in a statement issued by Isa Gusau, his special adviser on public relations and strategy.
He spoke after he approved the early payment of December salaries.

The governor said the payment of salaries is a debt to workers who have served the state.
“I have never considered payment of workers’ salaries as achievement but rather as payment of debt, in this case, government paying for the services rendered by law abiding civil servants who signed contracts with the government as employees to work for hours, days and weeks and be paid for their work at the end of the month,” Zulum said.

“The workers are in government debt when they work, and the government pays that debt by paying salaries.
“Payment of debt is never an achievement, it is an obligation and this why we ensure that before the 26th of every month, workers and pensioners get paid.
“The workers on their path must also be up and doing so that they can earn these salaries.”
