Cross River govt denies non-payment of workers’ salaries

Written by on April 5, 2022

The Cross River government has faulted media reports alleging that it has been unable to pay salaries to workers and gratuities to pensioners in the state.

This is contained in a statement signed by the state Head of Service (HOS), Mr Timothy Akwaji on Tuesday in Calabar.


Akwaji said the reports were malicious, untrue and concocted to dent the good image of Gov. Ben Ayade.

“Even in the face of challenging revenue inflows, the state government has consistently placed a premium on payment of salaries and pensions.

He said that the government would remain focused in its determination to address the concerns of workers and senior citizens of the state. (NAN)
