Anambra Government commences payment of February salaries

The payment of February salaries by cheque has commenced at the Jerome Udoji Secretariat Complex Awka, Anambra State, with over one thousand staff from various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) receiving their cheques.
The Head of Service, Barrister Harry Udu, said the aim of the biometric exercise was to ensure that the payroll is in line with the nominal roll.
While urging the workers to be calm that everybody would be attended to, the Head of Service stated that the exercise would last for two weeks, advising those who have difficulties in the process to visit the help-desk for immediate attention.
On his part, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Industry, Trade and Commerce, Mr. Leo Imoka, said the exercise was a welcome development, noting that at the end of the exercise, ghost workers would be dealt with.

Some of the workers Ebele Okeke and Kate Okafor, said though it took them time to get their cheques, she expressed joy that they succeeded and commended the state government for the initiative which according to them, will help sanitize the system.
