A reliable source closed to the government of Adamawa state has informed this blog that Governor Muhammadu Jibrin Bindow’s plan in the utilization of the N4,894,877,111 Paris Club Refund is to pay between 45% to 50% of the outstanding salaries of workers in the local governments, primary healthcare, teachers and pensions arrears
There are indications that workers with unresolved issues of BVN, Account Number and other related issues will not be paid.
Governor Bindow has promised that a committee will be set up to ensure payment of all outstanding salaries the Adamawa state government owes it workforce- especially primary school and health workers who have unpaid salaries running to several months.
Adamawa state Government has on Sunday 8th January 2017 received from the federal government the sum of N4,894,877,111 as refund from the Paris Club Debt.
Many workers in Adamawa state are skeptical that Mr. Bindow will fulfill his promise to pay the outstanding salaries as the Governor has on several occasions promise to pay the outstanding salaries but failed.
Mr. Bindow’s critic are of the view that the governor’s concentration on construction of roads only to the detriment of other sector has some hidden motives, but Mr. Bindow supporters are of the view that Adamawa state has for long time suffered neglect in the provision of basic infrastructure- the governor moves are in the right direction.
