The Kebbi State Government has urged local government workers earning N20,000 as monthly salaries to registers for N- Power if they have the requirements.
The Deputy Governor of the state, Col. Samaila Yombe Dabai, stated this, on Monday, when he visited the N-Power Registration Centre in Birnin-Kebbi.
The Deputy Governor, who encouraged local government workers on the scheme, earning a monthly salary of less than N20,000 said, “If you have requirements needed for N-Power enrolment,there is nothing stop you from registering for the programme.”
Dabai said that all local government workers who applied and eventually selected for the programme would be given the opportunity to serve in their places of choice.
He added that the present administration of Abubakar Atiku Bagudu would not relent on its efforts to fulfilling all promises made to the citizens.
He charged the workers to always be punctual at their duty posts,stressed that government would no longer condone truancy in the local government councils.
Earlier, the state’s Chairman, Local Government Service Commission, Alhaji Abubakar Nayaya, expressed concern at the attitude to work by some local government staff members.
According to him ,“I wonder how someone can have the conscience to be absent from work and still expect his monthly salary. We will work tirelessly to fish out the culprits and deal with them accordingly”.
