Aus­tere Sallah: Work­ers wail over non-pay­ment of salary

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Haruna Gimba Yaya, Gombe

As Mus­lims cel­e­brate Sallah, civil ser­vants in Gombe state are not in such good mood over the fail­ure of Gov­er­nor Ibrahim Has­san Dankwambo to pay them their salary for the month of June.

A check by this re­porter re­vealed that all the staff un­der the

pay­roll of the state civil ser­vice had not re­ceived their June

salary four days into the new month of July, a de­vel­op­ment that left many par­ents in dilemma on how to pro­vide food for their fam­i­lies dur­ing the Sallah pe­riod.

Daily Trust gath­ered that some work­ers had not re­ceived salary for the last three months, a de­vel­op­ment the

gov­ern­ment at­trib­uted to the on­go­ing staff ver­i­fi­ca­tion ex­er­cise.
