Governor Ben Ayade pays December salary | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


It’s early Christmas for civil servants in Cross River State as Governor Ben Ayade paid December salary yesterday.

Governor Ayade at a retreat for political appointees at the Obudu Ranch Resort gave a hint that the December salary would be paid on the first day of the month. Yesterday, he fulfilled that promise as workers got “alerts” of salary payment from their banks.

In May, salaries were paid on the first day to mark Workers’ Day. And last month, salaries were paid on November 15.

Some workers expressed delight at the early payment of salary ahead of the yuletide, especially as the state got zero allocation from the Federation Account this month.

Ayade said on early payment of salary: “Any governor can pay salary on the 25th of every month. For me, that is not what I like because it is not challenging. It is nothing extraordinary.”

He urged workers to be prudent on how they spend their salary.

He however promised “to be there should you run into any financial difficulty before end of January.”

  1. I hope they are paid January salaries before January 5th else, they'll suffer the consequences because that salaries will not even be with them till new year.

  2. That is what makes a good governor. In Abia state the governor is talking about roads while salaries for 4 months are being owed to Local Government staff so with other civil servants. That has been Abia PDP style since T A Orji's administration. People will be suffering and dying while they will be talking about legacy projects. They refuse to realize that when u pay salaries people will pay school fees, pay house rents, feed very well, pay electric bills and ply the roads healthy and happy. And the economy of the state will boom as they go to market to buy goods.
