President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed concern over unpaid salaries and allowances, in spite of interventions by the Federal Government. The President spoke when he received a group of governors led by Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) Chairman Abdul’Aziz Yari at the State House in Abuja. Buhari said the plight of workers in the states needed attention urgently as many could barely survive.
“How can anyone go to bed and sleep soundly when workers have not been paid their salaries for months. I actually wonder how the workers feed their families, pay their rent and even pay school fees for their children,” he said.
