THE Kaduna State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State to also consider pensioners on the approved 13th month bonus for civil servants on the payroll of the state.

In a press statement jointly signed by state’s chairperson of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Magaji Suleiman, and Secretary, Comrade Christiana John Bawa, the NLC commended the governor for approving bonus for the state’s civil servants.

“We must commend Governor Nasir el-Rufai for the end of the year bonus to our members and we hope the state government would also consider the pensioners who gave their best for the development of the state,” the statement said.

The NLC saluted the resilience and perseverance of the over 18,000 civil servants who were not paid their salaries for the months of October and November due to another payroll cleaning exercise embarked upon by the state government.

The statement expressed delight that with the completion of the exercise, most of the affected workers have updated their records and have been paid their outstanding salaries.

The statement noted that the period was a difficult one for the affected workers and their families and hoped that the outcome of the exercise will help improve the well-being of the civil servants in the state.
