BAUCHI State government yesterday said it had received N8 billion Federal Government bailout funds through Zenith Bank just as it has begun payment of salary arrears to civil servants.

This was disclosed yesterday by the Head of Service, Mr. Abdon Dalla Gin while addressing newsmen in Bauchi, saying that the state government owed no salary arrears to workers.

Gin said that the payment covers April and September 2015 that was inherited by the present administration.

He said: “I will use this medium to admonish workers to be committed and diligent while carrying out their duties, and as well avoid sabotaging government efforts towards development.”
