PDP Governor Pays December Salary

Cross River state Governor, Ben Ayade, has paid December salary to workers barely four days after paying them their November salary.

This is even as the state is yet to receive federal allocation for November.

On the rationale for the payment of December late November, the Governor explained: “We pay workers in the state early to usher in the Christmas festivities that begin in the state on December 1st. Besides, it also saves our workers the stress and strain of shopping close to Christmas given the tendency for prices of goods to skyrocket.

“So by paying early we ensure that our workers do their Christmas shopping early, thus getting true value for their money instead of buying goods at highly inflated prices if they shopped close to Christmas.

“Because we have paid December salary early, we will also pay January salary early so as to assist our workers who are parents meet up with the obligation of paying schools fees for their children,” Ayade assured.
