A letter by the Acting Secretary to the State Government, Mr. James Pisagih, said the appointment of the new special assistants took effect from the day they resumed duty.
The appointment of the SAs is coming at a time when about 3,000 teachers are yet to receive salaries for about five months over allegation of being ghost workers.
The new SAs, who are categorized into SA I, II, III and IV, were announced without any specific portfolio or assignment.
Those who served as SA I during the governor’s first tenure collected N80,000 as monthly salary, while SA II got N56,000 every month, DailyTrust gathered.
Monthly salaries of SA III and SA IV are pegged at N43,000 and N33,000 respectively.
