Yahaya Bello of Kogi has said his administration will ensure they bring ”no work no pay” policy into practice as workers in the state vowed to continue with the industrial action embarked upon since Sept. 22.
He, however, described those workers still not working in the state as “political civil servants’’, saying that only workers who resumed work would be paid their salary.
“Those workers that are still on strike are political civil servants; real civil servants are coming to work.
“We are trying our best to keep up with the payment of salaries.
“There is no denying the fact that the economy is biting hard everywhere and you will recall that I met four months’ salary backlog, I cleared it and today we are keeping up to date.
“We owe August and September as we speak. We are up to date in terms of salaries and those that come to work we shall pay them and those that don’t come to work, the ‘no work no pay’ shall surely apply,’’ he said.
He said: “Very soon we are going to publish all the salaries that we have paid to workers since inception in newspapers for people to see it.
“All the noise about Kogi is not paying salaries will be in public domain.’’
