Akwa Ibom government denies cutting salaries of workers.

Akwa Ibom state government, today, has denied the news making rounds that the government is planning to cut the salaries of workers in the state as a result of falling revenues. The State’s Head of Service, Elder Effiong Essien, in a statement he made to newsmen in Uyo, the state capital said all workers in the state should fear not as the state government will not be cutting their salaries.

According to him the salaries for April and May were paid in full of the new minimum wage, stating reassuringly that the government of Akwa Ibom has no intention of cutting back on salaries. He said: when it comes to worker’s welfare, Governor Udom deserves to be announced as the friendliest governor as he ensures timely payment of worker’s salaries. He also stated that the government ensures the regular provision of incentives for workers.

Elder Essien, however, stated that the government is facing some challenges in the area of worker’s enthusiasm towards work as he noted that a lot of workers don’t put in enough effort into their work. While ending his statement, he said he believes that the situation is, however, changing for the better.
