Mr Titus Abana, Borno NLC Chairman, made the commendation on Thursday in Maiduguri in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Abana said that despite the economic challenges, Borno government has never defaulted in the payment of salaries of workers, as well as meeting other demands of workers.

“Workers in Borno will confidently tell you that they receive their salary before 25th of the month.

“You will also agree with me that the citizens of Borno have benefitted from various government programmes and policies in the areas of education, skill acquisition, empowerment, transportation, and housing, ’’among others.

Abana also noted that the state government promptly implemented the N18,000 national minimum wage as well as salary structure approved for health workers.
He appealed to the governor to revive dormant industries in the state in order to further boost employment opportunities.

Abana listed the industries as the Soda Ash Plant, Wire and Nail Industry, Borno Fertiliser plant, among others.
