Salary alert is one which employees happily look forward to at the end of every month, but that has not been the case for local government workers and primary school teachers in Kogi state whose salaries have been described as ridiculous.
It is no longer news that these section of workers in the state have been helplessly jostling between 20-25% of their actual salaries, being the peanuts handed over to them by the government since the inception of the Yahaya Bello administration.
However, one of the primary school teachers who could no longer hold his peace has shared the munched screen of the alert he got.
Suleiman Nazir Muhammad with a crying emoji took to Facebook to lament the salary he got for the month of May, and paid into his account in July by the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB),
“Aftermath of Autonomy, this is what I received as may salary that was paid yesterday 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭And some idiot will be ask if I collected bank loan.
Walahi, I have never in any way involved in bank loan since I was born.”
The post which went viral on Facebook had people expressing disbelief, while some condemning the manner in which the workers are being treated.
“This is inhuman, how do u feed a family with 4k plus for 30days. You can’t expect productivity from people with this….. Kogi my dear state. May Allah take control of the situation” – Abdulrasheed Anda.
