Former Gov.Gabriel Suswam Reacts To Benue Wage Bill Saga

The issue of Benue wage bill has been a trending topic on the Benue cyber space for months now and just recently, there were reports that the governor Samuel Ortom's administration was able to slash the wage bill down to 4billion but not without accusing his predecessor of being responsible for the over bloated wage bill. 
However, QueenDoosh stumbled over an article by one John Mzer who claimed it was his purported interaction with the former governor. We however dont know if its true or not. Read it below.. 

There is no mystery about it!!

I Have Documents to Show Benue State Government is Unfair to Workers - Suswam


Sir, your administration is being accused of being the owners of ghost workers in the state?

That is totally untrue because I didn’t hand over any ghost workers to anyone. You see, it is rather very funny that they are claiming to be paying N7.8 b monthly. We are going to address that next week because as at the time we left, the last salary we paid was about N2.7 b.

Are there documents to back your claims sir?

Yes, there are documents, and I also have documents of what this present administration paid in June, July, August and September which wasn’t different from what we paid. So I am surprised that they started talking about N7.8b which is very ridiculous.

How do you react to that sir?

It is absolutely ridiculous that a governor would claim that he is paying that much. There is something that is fundamentally wrong with that, and we are going to publish what I paid from the day I entered into office up till the last day. We shall also publish what this government paid from June till September which isn’t totally different from what I paid in my last days in office.

But they claim you own the ghost workers that jerked up the wage bill?

That isn’t true because the last salary I paid was about N2.7b. If there was anything that was added to the salary, that should be in December 2015, and I didn’t do it because I had already left office then. I handed over about 19,000 workers to Ortom and the wage bill as at then was N2.7 b.

Sir, but they claim the wage bill is now N7.8b?

That is ridiculous. Are they saying that the N7.8b is the combination of civil service and local government? Let them be clear about that and stop fooling the people. You cannot put overhead as salary because they are two different things. Let them tell us what they’re paying for overhead. Let them tell us what they are paying for salaries. They must tell us what they pay the local governments because that is a different tier of government, and you cannot join salaries of state workers and local government together and create an impression that you are paying civil service N7.8b monthly. Let them come out and say how much because I have all the documents of everything they have been paying.

You have got proofs?

Yes, I have proofs of what we were paying and what is being paid by them till now. They must tell us what they are paying as local government staff salaries, they must tell us what they are paying teachers and the core civil servants in the state. We have all the materials and we shall release some of them  by next week. When i was governor, I didn’t hide what I paid as salaries so I have what I paid from day one and also the sequences at which I increased salaries.

PHOTOS: Canadian Billionaire, Barry Sherman Found Dead Together With His Wife

Toronto police are investigating the circumstances behind the deaths of billionaire founder of Canadian pharmaceutical firm Apotex, Barry Sherman, 75,  and his wife, Honey, who were found dead in their Toronto mansion on Friday.

According to reports, Police found the couple dead after they responded to a medical call at their home at 50 Old Colony Rd. in the Bayview Avenue and Highway 401 area around 11:45 a.m

“The circumstances of their death appear suspicious and we are treating it that way,” said police officer David Hopkinson. Homicide detectives later told reporters gathered outside the home that there were no signs of forced entry.

He also added that two bodies covered in blankets were removed from the home and loaded into an unmarked van on Friday evening. The property is listed for sale for nearly C$7m (£4.1m/US$5.4m).

Reacting to the sad news, Toronto mayor, John Tory, said he was “shocked and heartbroken” to learn of the deaths and noted the couple had made extensive contributions to the city.

“Toronto police are investigating, and I hope that investigation will be able to provide answers for all of us who are mourning this tremendous loss,” he said.

According to Apotex' website,  Sherman, 75, founded the pharmaceutical firm in 1974. He stepped down as chief executive in 2012 but remained as executive chairman. Forbes has estimated his net worth at $3.2bn.

The firm is the world’s seventh largest generic drugmaker and also said to be largest Canadian-owned pharmaceutical firm with annual sales of more than C$2bn.

It has operations in more than 45 countries, including the United States.

Ex Vp, Atiku Abubakar Opens Chicken Cottage Outlets Accross Nigeria

Nigeria's former vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has embarked on a job creation and empowerment project with the opening of several Chicken Cottage outlets accross the country.

Speaking at the  commissioning a  Chicken cottage outlet, owned by him, on Saturday in Abuja, he promised to open more of the outlets in strategically important locations in Nigeria.


“Our target is to have at least One Chicken Cottage Restaurant in every state in Nigeria. Ultimately, we intend to develop Chicken Cottage Nigeria as the regional hub for all operations in Sub-Saharan Africa. Towards this end,  I have given approval to the management to commence talks with Chicken Cottage International” he said.

He said that Chicken Cottage would also contribute to patronage of local farmers as the main raw materials for the products would be sourced locally. This according to him include agricultural produce such as chicken, vegetables, potato, rice.

“My ultimate joy will be to patronise our local farmers and see them have their produce bought and used here in Nigeria and Africa,  thereby empowering them. Furthermore, the multiplier benefits of this enterprise would extend to transporters, beverage suppliers, Appliance manufacturers, Artisans, Furniture makers. I found this interesting". he said.
