Gov. Sani Bello of Niger has given a 24-hour order for the payment of Primary Health Care workers at Maje in Suleja local council of the state.
He gave the order on Wednesday when he stopped his convoy to inspect facilities at the centre.
Bello directed Alhaji Ahmed Diko, Suleja Local Government Area Chairman, to pay the workers the two years outstanding salaries within 24 hours totalling N1.2 million.
“It is very unfair for people to work without payment.
“As the Chief Security Officer of this place, go and get money to pay this workers their due salaries within 24 hours,” he said.
Bello assured the causal workers of making them permanent staff if they discharge their duties diligently.
“This hospital is being used especially by pregnant women. So, always ensure proper hygiene especially in the bathrooms and toilets,” he said.
