No political appointee will receive salary before pensioners, civil servants — Governor Alex Otti vows

 

Abia State Governor, Alex Otti has directed that civil servants and pensioners in Abia State must receive their salaries before political office holders are paid.

 

This is even as he has lamented that pensioners were owed for so long by previous administrations in the state, before the backlog of the unpaid pensions were cleared by his administration.

Governor Otti said this in his Easter message to Abia citizens, wondering why retired civil servants who served the state were denied their pensions for so long.

“It is indeed regrettable that these great men and women (pensioners), who toiled for the State at the peak of their productive years were owed for so long.

 

“At any rate, as I mentioned in my address to Abians shortly after my inauguration, never again shall our senior citizens be subjected to the agony of unpaid entitlements.

 

“I have since directed that full pensions must be paid on or before the 28th of every month, the very same day civil servants in the State get their salaries.
