'Don't blame Governors for unpaid salaries,' Adamawa Gov says

Jibrilla said the dwindling revenue from the federation account has made it extremely difficult for states to pay salary.

Adamawa State Governor, Muhammadu Jibrilla.

Jibrilla was speaking Thursday, July 7, when he received traditional rulers who paid him sallah homage at government house in Yola.

While noting that Adamawa was one of the states that is steady in paying workers salary, Jibrilla said that workers in the state needed to appreciate the government for its effort in paying them salary as at when due.

The governor urged traditional rulers to enlighten the people on peaceful coexistence and the need to go back to farm.

He said Adamawa was among the seven states selected for Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) Anchor Borrower's Rice production programme.

Jibrilla assured them on government’s commitment to provide fertilizer to farmers.

In their separate responses, the Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Barkindo Mustafa and Emir of Mubi, Alhaji Abubakar Isa, lauded the governor for his effort to transform the state and assured him of the traditional rulers council support.
