Ayade to pay June Salaries next week

 The digital governor of Cross River state, Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade said all is now set for civil servants in the state to receive their June 2018 salaries next week.

The governor who made this revelation yesterday while addressing a crowd of Youths from Southern Cross River state who came to pay him a "Thank You" visit disclosed that the salaries which the state civil servant had nick named "alert" would have been paid this week but not for labour leaders who prevailed on him to defer it to next week.

 "I would  have paid  salary this week  but due to the  intervention  by labour,  I will pay next  week". The Governor said.

Note that the governor who is known to be prompt in payment of salaries to the state civil servant had in his tradition paid May 2018 salaries on the first of May while celebrating May Day with civil servants in the state.

It is therefore believed that the payment of June 2018 salary in the middle of the month is a rescue mission embarked upon by the governor to bringing relieve and respite to those who might have finished their salaries before the end of the month.
