GOVERNORS 1

Nasarawa local government council of Nasarawa state has 30 drivers on its payroll, earning salary monthly but there’s only one functional car in the council and it belongs to the local government chairman.

The commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs, Alhaji Ahmed Tijjani, stated this in Lafia while reacting to the refusal of labour to make necessary concessions in spirited efforts to end the ongoing strike by workers in the state.

Alhaji Tijjani, who was the chairman of the same local government before his appointment as commissioner called on labour to be considerate in their demands and make all necessary concessions in the spirit if collective bargaining that would see an end to the industrial faceoff.

He lamented that the workforce at the local government level was over bloated making it impossible for government to readily meet its obligation to workers, especially with the recent fall in revenue allocation.

The commissioner, expressed concern over why labour demanded the suspension of biometric screening of workers in the state which was being carried out in good faith in order to fish out ghost workers and check revenue leakages.
