Jubilation as Governor pays December salary

Governor Ben Ayade has made civil servants in Cross River state happy

The governor had promised to carry out the action during a retreat for political appointees at the Obudu Ranch Resort recently.

Ayade had always paid the workers early since he assumed office in May 2015. In May, salaries were paid on the first day to mark Workers’ Day. While last month, salaries were paid on November 15.

Cross River state officially goes on break from December 1 as the state prepares for a month-long carnival and other activities which makes the capital, Calabar, a choice destination for holiday seekers every year.

Some workers expressed delight at the early payment of salary ahead of the yuletide, especially as the state got zero allocation from the Federation Account this month.

The governor however urged the workers to be prudent on how they spend their salary, promising that he would be there for them in case they run into any financial difficulty before the end of January.
