How much Nigeria's elected public office holders earn has always been a subject of debate among Nigerians, always heated usually with unsubstantiated claims.
Alhaji Babasheikh Haruna, the special assistant on media to Governor Babagana Zulum, announced this in a statement issued in Maiduguri on Tuesday, August 13.
The group stated that many unwarranted dealings of the former commissioner during his stay in office with Abia state funds, according to them, hampered accomplishment of some developmental projects in the state.
In a message he sent to journalists and personally signed on Saturday, August 10, the governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, said he had paid all cleared civil servants in the state to July this year.
A foremost contender for the Kogi governorship election, Prince Mohammed Abubakar Audu, has described as embarrassing the celebrations by the Kogi state government after recently paying salary arrears.
Civil servants in Kogi state have resolved to support the second term ambition of Governor Yahaya Bello as the state chief executive recently cleared all outstanding salary arrears including the month of July.
