Illegal Deductions: Akwa Ibom Govt Debunks Former Governor Akpabio’s Allegation
The Head of Civil Service, Akwa Ibom State, Ekereobong Akpan, has denied the allegation by Senator Godswill Akpabio that the state government deducts certain amount from workers’ salaries to host its events.
The Head of Service, who stated this while addressing newsmen in her office added that government does not only pay complete salaries to workers, but does so on time.
According to Planet101 FM, Akpan described such claim credited to the former senate minority leader as a desperate ploy by the opposition to taint the administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel.
She explained that it was impossible for any kobo to be deducted from the salary of civil servants without the knowledge and agreement of the labour unions.
She described Governor Udom Emmanuel as a problem solver who is not moved by cheap political propaganda but focused on the welfare of civil servants.
