The Face-off between the Executive and the Judiciary lingers on as the Subvention/salary has not been paid to date.
Consequently , the Elders’ met with the Secretary to Kogi State Government, (SSG) Dr. Mrs Folashade Arike on Monday for further dialogue.
According to the elders, it was agreed that government will pay salaries for 5 months by cheque during the Biometric Data Capturing.
But the JUSUN is demanding for one month salary before the data capturing.
“We agreed with JUSUN and requesting the government to pay the one month subvention so that data capturing could proceed accordingly.
However, the SSG stated that she had no mandate for one month payment of subvention before data capturing, except the Governor. The Governor is a way in Abuja and he is expected back on Tuesday.
The SSG is to book appointment for the Elders’ with the Governor to enable them impress on him to pay one month subvention to enable them prepare for biometric data capturing for the balance salary.
