News Agency of Nigeria
This is according to a statement signed on Tuesday in Calabar by the state’s Head of Service (HOS), Mr Timothy Akwaji.
The reports, according to Akwaji, were nasty, inaccurate, and manufactured to smear Gov. Ben Ayade’s good name.
“Even in the face of challenging revenue inflows, the state government has consistently placed premium on payment of salaries and pensions.
“It is unarguable that even in the face of challenging revenue inflows, coupled with suffocating debt over-hang, the Ayade led administration has religiously placed premium on payment of salaries and pension to the admiration of all.
“However, any person or group of persons who have genuine claims of being owed salaries and pensions should forward same to the HOS for investigation and further action.
“The State Government shall not hesitate to sanction or prosecute those orchestrating this malicious and cheap propaganda aimed at causing disaffection in the state,” he said.
He stated that the administration will stay committed to addressing the issues of state workers and older residents.
