Mr. Yari, the Zamfara state Governor is owning workers 60 months salaries.
Some of the workers who were recruited in 2014 say they have not been paid for over five years.
The workers led by Mr. Lukman Majidadi, at a press conference on Thursday disclosed that, for the past five years, the Zamfara state government has not paid them any salary.
The workers have since called on the governor to settle their outstanding salaries.
Mr. Muhammad Isah, the Zamfara state head of service when contacted for an explanation, said the workers numbering about 1,400 do not have their names on the state payroll.
He said there was a dispute between the state ministry of finance and the committee about the recruited workers which was under the state Civil Service Commission.
He dismissed the claim of the workers.
