Comrade Abubakar, who described the bailout fund released to states by the Federal Government as important and timely wants council chairmen in the state to ensure that every worker at the local government level gets their entitlements.
According to him, the over N4 Billion disbursed to the local governments as bailout is sufficient enough to settle all salary arrears been owned council workers in the state, stressing that NULGE will partner with the leadership of the councils to ensure that no worker is left out from receiving their entitlement.
