The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has made a passionate appeal to workers in the Imo State to remain patient as the government is committed to ensuring that in no distant time all salaries being owed by the state government would be paid accordingly.
The Governor gave this assurance in Owerri the Imo State capital while speaking to Government House correspondents at the government house.
This is in the face of the crisis of unpaid salaries of workers rocking most states of the federation.
He said that the government does not have any intention of downsizing or slashing workers salaries as peddled by some quarters, noting that his government is a worker-friendly government and the challenge of the unpaid salaries is not peculiar to Imo state.
He, however, advised workers in the state to remain committed and dedicated to their duties as the state government will not condone any form of financial recklessness, laziness and activities of ghost workers.
Imo State is one of the state in the federation listed to be owing workers and pensioners.
