Zulum Approves April Salaries For Workers In Preparation For Eid-El Fitr

The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum, has approved the release of April salaries for workers in the state in preparation for the 2023 Eid-El Fitr celebrations.
In a statement conveyed by Malam Isa Gusau, spokesperson to the governor, on Monday, the governor has remained consistent in the early payment of salaries during festive periods for the past four years.
“Governor Zulum has regularly approved early payments done between the 15th and 17th of affected months, to enable preparation for special occasions such as Sallah and Christmas festivals.”
According to the statement, the state workers have already begun receiving alerts for the payment.
“Governor Zulum has always argued that payment of salaries does not count as an achievement since salaries are debts owed workers for their services, as such, the governor has never defaulted on the monthly payment of salaries and pensions while he has released over N20 billion to clear gratuities owed retired workers”, the statement reads.
It added that Borno state workers have always been paid their monthly salaries between the 25th and 26th of every month
“Governor Zulum wishes all Muslims in Borno State a spiritually fulfilling, joyous and memorable Eid-el fitr celebration,” the statement added.
