Rivers State civil servants on Thursday registered their grievances over the nonpayment of the one hundred thousand naira Christmas largesse approved by the state government.
Recall that on 19th of December, the state Governor Similayi Fubara, approved the sum of one hundred thousand naira for thousands of workers in the different Ministries, Departments, And Agencies.
In response to this, the governor represented by the state Head of Service, George Nweke, apologized to the workers over the development. He attributed the delay in the payment of the largesse to the unfavorable telecommunication networks being experienced by the bank handling the disbursement and other banks.
According to him, the money has been paid to workers by the state government, but some banks are encountering some glitches. He further assured the workers that by Friday they would receive the money.
The governor assured the workers that other issues, such as the unpaid arrears, would also be adequately addressed.
