With or without the Paris Club refund, the governors have money to pay salary -NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has criticized state governors waiting for the other 50% of the Paris Cub refund before they would pay salary to their workers.

The NLC said using the refund as a precondition for salary payment is not only inappropriate but unacceptable as well.

Dr. Peter Ozon-Eson, the general secretary of the group who spoke to journalists recently said the governors should not have access to the other half of the Paris Club refund until they pay salary.

Ozon-Eson said: "Paris Club refund money belongs to state governors but to use it as precondition for salary payment is inappropriate and unacceptable to us.

'We know that with or without the refund, the governors have money to pay. When the earlier refund was made, there was a commitment that they were going to use 50 per cent of the refund to pay salaries and pensions.

''Those of them (governors) who did not comply with the agreement have no right to demand for another refund. They must first comply with the agreement or commitment reached on the earlier refund before they can enjoy another refund."
