Abia government suspends salaries of unidentified workers

The Abia State Government has announced that civil servants who have not undergone a verification exercise will not receive their salaries from November 2023.

The Commissioner for Information and Culture, Okey Kanu, said this on Monday while briefing reporters on the outcome of this week’s Executive Council meeting presided over by Governor Alex Otti in Umuahia.

He said all concerned civil servants should have taken advantage of the two-week extension given by the state government to complete the verification.

Mr Kanu said those who were not able to get verified can still contact the heads of their respective ministries to find out why they were not verified.

He also announced that 197 recently closed private schools in the state may reopen if they meet state government guidelines and standards.

He pointed out that the closed private schools had low-quality teachers and were kept in very poor conditions.

He added that the state government will soon launch a whistle-blowing policy.

Adding her voice, Betty Emeka-Obasi, Senior Special Adviser on Special Operations to the Abia State Governor, said the names of the unidentified workers had been made public and advised them to approach the top of the MDA. .
