Taraba: Bali LG Workers Blame LG Boss Over 4 Months Unpaid Salaries

Workers in Bali local government council, Taraba State, numbering about 100, have raised concerns regarding their unpaid salaries for the past four months.

 In an open letter addressed to Governor Agbu Kefas and the Permanent Secretary, Bureau for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, they urged intervention to compel council chairman Aboki Dauda to promptly settle their owed salaries.

Blaming Dauda for withholding their salaries without justification, they highlighted the severe hardships they faced, aggravated by national economic challenges and actions initiated by the local government council. They emphasized their inability to afford basic necessities, including schooling for their children and access to medical care and food.

Expressing their collective resolve, they pleaded for the immediate payment of their long-overdue arrears, appealing to the governor and the Permanent Secretary to swiftly alleviate their plight. 

Abdulmumuni Isa, chairman of the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) in the area, echoed the non-payment of salaries since January during discussions with journalists in Jalingo.

 Isa attributed the issue to a staff audit and verification exercise conducted by the local government council in December, resulting in the removal of some staff names from the payroll, adversely affecting genuine workers.

Despite attempts to seek clarification, Dauda declined to comment on the matter when contacted by phone.
