Kogi state labour union leaders have thanked Mr. Yahaya Bello, the state Governor for paying two months salary arrears.
Thanking the governor, the labour union state chapter said the December 2018 and January 2019 salaries payment will go a long way in helping the workers.
Mr. Onuh Edoka, the state labour chapter chairman in a statement thanked the Governor for the salary payment and said it was a huge relief for workers.
He thanked the Governor for fulfilling his promise of paying outstanding salaries.
He however appealed to the governor to ensure he pays salaries regularly.
He described the percentage salary paid to teachers and local government workers as unacceptable, saying that was not the agreement between the state and the labour union.
He has since appealed to the workers to support Bello administration.
