The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has said that it is a sin for any employer of labour particularly government to owe workers salaries in a time of recession the country is in now.

Obiano said this during the commencement of the Anambra State Fire and Safety Summit in Awka on Wednesday.

He said payment of workers’ salaries would energise the economy in a recession and make life more meaningful for the people.

The governor, who expressed fear that the dollar would continue to rise against the naira, said it would take no fewer than 18 months for the economic downturn in the country to subside.

He said, “A state that does not pay its workers is inviting calamity. Payment of workers’ salaries energises the economy.

“We saw this recession early and made agriculture one of the pillars of our administration.

This is why we have been paying our workers. It is wicked to owe workers at a time like this.


“People should embrace risk management. That is the solution to disaster, especially in a recession.

“No recession lasts less than 18 months, so we need to wake up. The naira is moving to N500 per dollar.

“We need to secure our certificates and other valuables of ours so that nothing will happen to them overnight. That’s the way to survive in a recession.”

He said his administration foresaw the trouble and embarked on preemptive measures such as investment in agriculture.

Obiano posited that risk management was the solution to economic recession.

He called on Nigerians to develop the culture of insuring their lives and property, arguing that it was one sure way of mitigating the adverse effects of disasters whenever they would occur.

The governor, however, observed that the people of the South-East geopolitical zone had not been paying attention to insurance.

He added that that was why they were usually the worse hit whenever disasters occurred.

He said that his administration had acquired 10 sophisticated modern fire-fighting trucks to boost the activities of the state fire service

The governor advised that rather than approach government for assistance whenever disaster occurred, the people should form the habit of taking insurance policies.

“My expectation is that our people will be better informed about disaster and its management after listening to the various speakers at this summit,” the governor said.

Tell that to Abia State Government owing workers whooping six months salary and still go on air to claim they have paid.

Abia State polytechnic, Aba are on their fourth week of strike for their six months salary.

How are these people going to pay their children's school fees and still meet up with the inflation at the same salary which they are yet to collect.

Many of them running their post graduate programs have entered school fees demurrage because of work no pay.

Those in teaching hospital are down six months too and same with local governments.

..not only is it wicked but I think it is criminal too.
Where some state governments pay it's top officials all monies that accrue including allowances at the expense of the common worker is simply criminal, and the height of insensitivity.
I would've expected such a government to either pay it's lower cadre workers first, as a matter of concern or to also forego their emoluments as a sign of solidarity when other workers are not paid.
Mehn! 9ja is aeons away from "El dorado"!

Did we not elect them?
Do we not allow them to MISrule us?
Were they not ordinary folks like us before now?
Therefore, if our leaders looters are wicked, it is because we the followers are equally wicked.
