Here Are The States In Nigeria That Haven't Paid Their Workers In 2017

Civil servants in Abia, Oyo, Benue, Ondo, Kogi, and Ekiti states have not received salaries in 2017, a survey conducted by BudgIT, a civic
tech organisation, has shown.

An official statement released in Abuja by BudgIT Nigeria indicates that up to 20 states
owe their workers including pensioners their entitlements ranging from one to 36 months.

BudgITng said it decided to conduct a qualitative analysis of the frequency of salary
payment of six different categories of workers
in all the 36 states.

According to TheCable news, the survey by BudgITng, covered primary school teachers,
secondary school teachers, local government workers, state independent workers, pensioners
and state secretariat workers.
A part of the statement read; “In particular, we discovered that many states have defaulted in
the payments of pensions and gratuities.

“From the survey carried out, we discovered that apart from the fact that 16 states which
are yet to pay the pensions of former civil servants in their service, 8 of these states have
not paid their pensioners at least 12 months’ pensions...

“Notably, these pensioners expressed how unhappy they are, their dissatisfaction with the
government and how hard it has been for them to survive.

“In addition to outstanding pensions, we note from our survey, that across all categories, states like Kogi, Abia, Benue, Oyo, Ekiti and
Ondo have not paid their workers’ salaries for this year 2017; owing at least 4 months’ salary.

However, the likes of Lagos and Rivers have been consistently impressive with their up to
date and full payment of civil servants’ remuneration."
