Abia Govt Admits Owing Salaries, Highlights Affected Mdas, Pledges Action by Metrixnews: 3:03pm On May 04, 2019
The Abia State government has offered detailed explanations on the outstanding salaries owed to civil servants in the state, saying actions are ongoing to address issues bordering on salary payment.

In a release signed by the State Commissioner for Finance, Mr Obinna Oriaku, the state government said it is embarking on a reform/restructure of the public sector management system to make it more functional and optimally effective.

It also solicited for support of the general public as it embarks on this journey which it says will help redirect our state to the path of sustainable development.

Press Statement

Our Position on Parastatals Salary issues

While we acknowledge that there are lingering salary issues to be cleared in Abia State, especially with parastatals and pensioners, we wish to state the following facts to clarify the distortions and present concerned members of the public with details of ongoing efforts by the Government to tackle the challenges

HMB/ABSUTH

Parastatals like the Hospital Management Board (HMB) and the Abia State University Teaching Hospital (ABSUTH) are institutions to which the State pays subventions on a monthly basis, these institutions generate revenue which they are supposed to use for their operations including payment of salaries of their workers.

Following a painstaking review of the operations, processes and procedures of these parastatals which are discovered to be grossly flawed, the Abia State Government was left with no other option but to wield the big hammer by dissolving their Boards last week to pave way for more efficient management team that would reposition these institutions, shield them from undue external interference and pressures and deliver on their mandates seamlessly. These steps are in addition to the series of meetings representatives of government had with the Nigeria Medical Council (NMC) and a holistic review of HMB/ABSUTH operations last month wherein it was agreed that that state government pays two months subventions every month to the institutions to help them clear the outstanding. Implementation of this agreement will commence this May. It is our sincerest hope that ABSUTH workers will seize this opportunity to call off their industrial action. It is our firm belief that after the review and implementation of the recommendations of the committee set up by the state government on these institutions, they will become more efficient and self-sustaining.

SEMB

The secondary school teachers salaries’ outstanding is due to the restructuring of the sector that has affected the Secondary Education Management Board (SEMB). It is on record that Abia is the only State in the entire federation that still manages a Junior Secondary School system that is distinct from its senior category. With the recent signing off on the review of the sector by the Governor, the Junior Secondary School system will be joined with ASUBEB as obtainable in other states of the federation and with its resultant effect on staff delineation from SEMB to ASUBEB. It is expected that this process would be completed this month and the secondary school wage bill would be easier to manage unlike what is currently on ground. The State has also concluded plans to be paying the teachers two months salaries every month effective from May allocation to clear the outstanding.

Abia and kogi are one unfortunate state that has suffered bad governance since independence.


The funny thing is, the people of those states are inglorious sufferhead people.

Imagine after a terrible rule of Theodore Orji (worst governor in the history of Nigeria) , OSU PEOPLE still went ahead to dash him senatorial seat.


Very funny people.

Its Osun matter they carry for head like gala.

Fixing Salary and increasing wage bill problem is simply in the effective utilization of workers to be really productive rather than been mere Gosips and roamers of secetariat.

Each states has Ministry of works with idle staffs and engineers yet all state depends on contractors to construct simple drainage, the contractors not only charge 30% of project value, but charge extra to cover overhead while engineers from the ministry earn free salary

During the Awolowo good old days, Ministry of trade and cormerce was the richest Money making ministry, they simply go to villages and farm settlements to buy cash crops at a low price and package it for export, there by making huge profit, and supporting the farmers, this days Dull Politician would foolishly say goverment has no business running business, while their mates in Qatar are investing in Porshe Automaker Germany

The Easterners are only concerned about Yahaya Bello and other states outside their zone. No wonder they ain't forging ahead in all ramifications of governance. They leave their own problems and carry other peoples problem for head.

I am very sure majority of them will still hail this man despite the bad governance. At the end, they hold F.G accountable for their misfortunes instead of their leaders.
