    Why are the state government workers’ salaries delayed? should ” half salary” even exist in Nigeria? There are so many homes in Nigeria that rely on their monthly income, how will they survive without their pay for more than 10 months? There has been indications that civil servants working with state government will be owed  salaries in the coming month due to the shortfall of revenue ? (This our leaders no go kill person). Every single person in Nigeria knows we have a culture of not paying workers their dues.  

    In 2019, it was reported that 30 states have been owing their workers 13 months salary.  we have lost so many medical practitioner to other countries because the Nigeria government treat them unfairly by paying them peanuts.  despite the peanuts they pay, they still find it really difficult to pay their salaries monthly. 

    Four months ago, it was reported that  some of Osun state’s civil servants have not been paid for 30 months. like 30 months??  that is ridiculous.! 

    I do not think owing workers what is due to them is fair considering that ,finding steady employment is really difficult in Nigeria.

    Evidently Nigeria economy depends heavily on crude oil which we have not been able to sell since the inception of the global lock-down. So no money to pay salary and when we borrow it is also for embezzlement.

    Most importantly many states in Nigeria are not self sufficient coupled with being ruled by corrupt leaders

        Best is too cut down the number of government workers. 

        Most of the offices held are not necessary 

        We have ministers with several assistants, Personal Assistant  having personal staff.

        All these have to stopped.

    Yea, half salaries and non-payment of workers’ entitlement is bad… But truth is many of these states don’t even have need for many workers in their workforce, if not for politics and the lack of ideas, government shouldn’t be solely responsible for employing everyone instead it should create the right environment and policies to foster employment whether self or private sector – driven but unfortunately our leaders are bereft of ideas. 

    Moreso, if you ever get the opportunity to go through our cashflow, I mean at Federal level, you’ll get to realize this country is BROKE! Yet the cost of governance is rather expensive and a meager section of the society – I mean some of us- are bent on milking/raping/ and extorting all of us!  It’s just one of the pathetic idiosyncrasies of our government and legislaTHIEVES

      If truly Nigeria is broke and some states have no need for many workers in their workforce, how then can Nigeria reduce its unemployment rate ? How can a country like Nigeria who was once known to be an exporter of Agricultural goods before the discovery of oil fix her economy? do you really think the country ” NIGERIA” can work despite our multi ethnic groups?

        One person that made me believe this was Governor Fashola tenure in Lagos. He really made Lagos lovely. If we have a Fashola in every state in Nigeria but then …

    For a country that spends nearly all of her revenue on debt relief, and running an expensive government, I mean from the Presidency down to a normal ward councillor, you cant expect less. Corruption births from greedy and selfish soul, and its at the very core of every transaction. We just need to love one another and everything we fall in place.

      Do you think loving one another alone will resolve Nigeria current issues?

        When you love, you will care, and when you care, you wont divert or embezzle funds meant for the people. The Covid-19 case study is an example. If they had thought of developing the health systems of the country, some of them might have been alive now.

      Loving one another is great but I think that synonymous to seeking an utopia which is practically impossible. 

      We need to create laws and policies to checkmate everyone and most importantly citizens should hold their governments accountable.

      We have created society that glorifies mediocrity, praise lazy individuals and hail the oppressors.

      The job security in government offices is too high as well making people getting paid for doing nothing. 

      We need law and justice rather than love. Love however is good

        I agree, I just feel when a nation wants to grow, the country must take care of her citizens which comes with policies, governance, processes and systems that cares. Hence, you start seeing positive changes that breeds growth. The issue with the country Nigeria started way back to the colonial days, a biased-based governance that hypocritically merged different nations together just because of their selfish interests, though we have to move on from there, but this current central governance system will not help, I believe we have to go back to regional systems, were people can take care of themselves; then people can hold themselves(thier people) accountable. 

        As it is, it is “chop i chop”.
