Delta State Government has noted with shock and embarrassment a misleading report in the Vanguared Newspaper of Tuesday, November 28, 2017, listing Delta State as one of the States owing workers salaries.
The state government in a statement released by the Commission, Mr. Patrick Ukah, clarified that Delta State was not owing its worker but had paid todate all her workers to date.
According to Mr. Ukah, “we have also consistenly given financial support to the local Government Councils to enable them pay the salaries of their worker”.
“We consider the report as malicious and tendentious and therefore, demand an unreserved apology and immediate retraction of the story from the Vanguard Newspaper”.
“We urge journalists to always cross check their facts before rushing to the press as such false information undermines good governance”.
The information Commissioner reiterated that despite the economic downturn, Delta State Government had consistently paid ots workers salaries and had continued to excel in infrastructure development and renewal, job creation and human capital development.
