Imagine living for 38 months as a civil servant without your salary being paid. Imagine your salary being withheld for no reasonable justification. Imagine the economic, psychological, and health trauma you and your dependants will face. This is the true story of Haruna Ibrahim, a civil servant with the the Bauchi state Ministry of Environment and Forestry with PSN821312.
Haruna, who has not been receiving hls salary since October, 2019, is an indigene of Itas/Gadau local government area of Bauchi state.
Haruna’s salary salary was suspended by the Adamu Gumba’s verification committee which was set-up by Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state.
Haruna said that all efforts to address the issue failed as he is pretty sure that Governor Bala Muhammed is not aware of the situation. “I am not a ghost worker, I hope that Governor Bala Muhammed will hear me this time around,” Haruna said amidst tears.
Doctors’ examination shows that the victim is battling with psychological disorder which is in one way or the other connected to the situation he finds himself.
His sibling, Auwalu Haruna, said whenever Bauchi state government pays salaries, his brother becomes sleepless for days.
He added that the victim has been visiting his ministry and his bank throughout the 38 months in order to resolve the issue but nothing good has come out of it.
I, therefore, call on the Bauchi state Governor, Bala Mohammed, the secretary to the state government, head of civil service, and the commissioner for environment and forestry to look into Haruna Ibrahim’s issue.
If my plea is granted, Haruna would be able to get medications, help his dependants and start a new life.
Note that this write-up is to make the concerned authorities to take action. I don’t mean to condemn or tarnish the current administration.
May Allah make it easy for Haruna Ibrahim and grant him Shifa and he can be reached through [email protected]
