Workers in Bauchi state have appealed to governor Bala Mohammed for regular release and implementation of promotions to all deserving officers.
Bauchi state chairman Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Danjuma Saleh made the appeal on Saturday during the commemoration of the 2021 international workers day.
According to him, the promotions are not coming as at when due lamenting that passing promotions examinations is not a guarantee for one to be promoted in the state now.
The congress also solicited additional funding on the monthly allocation to the state and local government pension boards to enable them cover significant number of retirees.
On the abolition of public rented quarters by the government, the NLC chairman said “It is also fair to restore the rent allowances of the affected officers to enable them continue to pay for an alternative accommodation.
In his speech, the state governor Bala Mohammed represented by the speaker of the state assembly Abubakar Suleiman said the present challenge for workers is to follow the noble leadership of their founding fathers in order to achieve turn around of the economy.
He said since the inception of his administration, measures are being put in place to ensure stabilization of salaries and pensions payment whereby the nominal roll will primarily drive the payroll, block leakages, improve cash flow management and cut irrelevant spendings.
