Cross River workers get May salaries on May Day eve

Ayade newsCross River State workers Sunday evening received alerts of payment of their salaries for the month of May.
 
The payment, which was made on the eve of this year’s May Day celebrations is coming a day earlier than last year when the state governor, Senator Ben Ayade ordered payment of May salary on the first day of May.
 
Ayade has made salary payment one of his administration’s cardinal objectives with workers getting paid early every month.
The payment of salaries for the Month of May is coming barely a week after the payment of salaries for the Month of April in the state.
 
It would be recalled that during the celebration of Workers’ Day last year, the ceremony became frenzied as shouts of “alerts” rent the air once workers began to receive bank alerts regarding the payment of their salary for the month which was just beginning.
 
However, the governor appears to have trumped that record this year by paying May salary on the last day of April.
It is not known how the workers will receive this latest gesture from the governor.
 
Workers in the state have often complained of getting paid too early in the Month since Ayade assumed office in 2015.
Reacting to the complaint at an event recently, Governor Ayade joked that getting paid early is a good problem for the workers to have.
 
He said he feels challenged only when he is able to pay salaries in the second week of every month.

  1. I wish to comment the Governor for his good gesture. I am actually very grateful to whatever he has done by always paying salaries that early and doing other things for the state. But one thing he has failed to do to his civil servants is the incremental date/day for all the workers in the state. Since he got into power none of the workers has ever seen his or her salary being increased. Civil servants are always happy when salaries increased at the beginning of every year, but our Governor here has no time to check. It is good to pay salaries early but when things are increasing and salaries are nothing to write home about. I wish that he should recognized the present situation of life now and be prompted to do things for the benefit of the state workers and the common Man.
