Zulum approves leave grants for 10,319 workers, pensioners

Updated Aug 07 2019 02:08 pm

Borno State Governor Babagana Umara Zulum has given approval for payment of 2018 outstanding leave grants to 9,898 workers.

He also approved payment of gratuities to families of 185 deceased pensioners and compassionate intervention to families of 236 pensioners, who have also passed on.

Zulum had last month approved payment of gratuities to 1,684 pensioners, who retired from 2013 to date.

Special Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy Malam Isa Gusau, in a statement issued yesterday, explained that in the latest approval, the governor directed the head of service to work with the state’s Ministry of Finance to ensure payments get to bank accounts of all beneficiaries within days.

Also in the governor’s approval, Gusau noted, was the payment of furniture allowance to two permanent secretaries, who were in office when the governor paid an unscheduled visit to the state secretariat in Maiduguri on May 31 – about 48 hours after his inauguration.

Zulum had, during his visit, trapped absentee permanent secretaries, directors and other categories of workers. He also caught many late comers. The governor promised sanctions for absentees and those who arrived late.

He promised a reward for the permanent secretaries and 96 workers he met on ground.

In fulfillment of his promise, Zulum rewarded the permanent secretaries with speedy approval of their furniture allowances and gave order for early release of the 2019 leave grant to the 96 workers he found in office.

The same workers were also included for payment of the 2018 outstanding leave grants.
