The decision of Adamawa Government of “it’s unable to pay March Salary, without the minimum wage and the consequential adjustment”
because of convid-19 bedeviling effects on Economy has attracted a response from a senior Politician in the state.
The response of Dr Umar Ardo who is spear heading the affairs of R-PDP,a factional group of the People’s democracy Party has chided the executive Governor of the state,Rt Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to lack serious in running the affairs of the state.
He said in a serious societies,Goverment injects money to mitigate the effects of coronavirus and stimulate the Economy not to cause More pains on the masses as a result of the virus
He said the case is different in Adamawa as the government is unable to even pay workers their meager salaries.
According to him it is all as a result of poor governance, lacking in innovation and direction on the part of operators.
Ardo enjoined people to pray to God Almighty for help, calling on them to stand up to what is right and stand against to what is wrong, According to him God will surely come to people assistance.
“The government also needs to be prudent, cut off these unnecessary almost constant travels in which huge amounts are expected supporting lavish lifestyle, collecting of unmerited Awards, etc all at the expense of the state.” Ardo
The factional Leader who responded to our reporter on his accredited whatapps chat on the story of its unable payment of the trade workers union of March Salary,he Said:
“Leadership must be a service, rather than a bazaar. That is the only way to come out of the mess we now find ourselves in.”
The Director communication and Media to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri responded that it is an error to say that adamawa state did not pay March Salary.
Mr Solomon Kumangar Said:
“First and foremost Adamawa State has paid March salaries but without the minimum wage and the consequential adjustment incidental to. To have that Adamawa State Government is unable to pay salaries is totally erraneous false and misleading.
He said Governor Ahmadu is more innovative than taking proactive measures to absorb the effect of the global economic meltdown by scaling down the budget by twenty percent and cutting taxes for the informal sector in which most citizens are involved.
“We should grow above political acrimony and team up and address the combined negative effects of covid 19 on the State’s socio-economic and political well being.
“Government has provided the palliative as an effective response to the global economic crisis but those who feel otherwise should be able to contribute to finding a good solution not empty partisan ‘bad belle’ shinnegans of political never-do-wells.”
