After days of dillydallying, the Kogi State Government finally agreed on Thursday to pay workers in the state civil service 80% as salaries for May.

Recall that ahead of the Eid-El-Fitri Celebration, the organized labour had rejected the proposed 60% pay for workers and Pensioners.

The workers had basked in the euphoria of the promise by the government to make payment latest Thursday as was confirmed by the Kogi State Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning, Asiwaju Idris Asiru only to be told of 60%.

However, after a meeting between government and labour, the organized labour leaders rejected the 60% payment proposal describing it as inhuman. The development resulted in more meetings and the government’s recent decision to jerk up it’s proposal to 80%.
