Borno earmarks N88.5m to train 1,050 civil servants
Borno State Government has earmarked N88.5m for training and re-training of 1,050 civil servants. The training, to begin soon, will extend to December 2021.
The Head of Service (HoS), Simon Malgwi, revealed this, yesterday, in Maiduguri, the state capital. He said training had become inevitable, as many workers that have served for over 20 years, did not benefit from any training or re-training to improve service delivery.
Malgwi said: “During the last State Executive Council (SEC) meeting chaired by the Governor, I presented a memo and N88.5m was approved for training of 1,050 civil servants from now to December, 2021.” He said Borno State government was the first, among other states, to implement the N30, 000 minimum wage.
“Aside paying the minimum wage, the state got N12b loan from Zenith Bank to settle retired workers’ gratuities and pension,” he said.
“Even before the inception of Zulum’s administration, the state government was paying salaries as and when due,” he said.
On rehabilitation of the secretariat, he said: “The Musa Usman Secretariat Complex was dilapidated for over three decades. The state government renovated all e office complexes and other structures in the secretariat.
“The offices of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) at the secretariat are now fully-equipped and furnished with working tools…”
