Kebbi State Government says it is committed to the payment of N30 billion to workers’ gratuities between 2015 and 2018.

The State's acting Head of Service, Safiyanu Garba-Bena, disclosed this on Wednesday while briefing newsmen in his office in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, adding that this is in line with Governor Atiku Bagudu-led administration’s commitment to the welfare of the state workforce after retirement led to the approval of cumulative amount of N30.3 billion by the Governor.

"This comprised N20.1 billion for 2015 to 2018 and N10.2 billion, representing the payment of balances of 2017 and 2018 as well as full payment to the 2019 to 2021 verified retirees, all totalling 3,724," he said.

“Let me reiterate that these payments are to ensure general welfare of retirees, both in the local government and state service, in line with the current administration’s welfare policy.

“The payment is to cover 1,172 beneficiaries of the state, local government and local government education authorities (LGEAs),” he added.

The head of service called on all retirees to make judicious use of their money by embarking on useful ventures such as farming, trading and commerce in order to cater for their families.

Also speaking, Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kebbi State chapter, Umar Halidu-Alhassan, commended the state government for being alive to its responsibilities.

Halidu-Alhassan, however, appealed to the state government to settle the outstanding leave grants so as to give the civil servants courage and zeal to take the state to greater heights.
