According to him, Due to the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, that plunged the world into economic crisis, some payments were not made, covering about 6 months arrears.
However, the ever diligent, committed and dedicated Governor, made a promise to pay all outstanding payments before the end of October.
Following his words with action, the payments of arrears commenced two months ago where in the first instance, beneficiaries went home with a sum of N10,000 each, then another N10,000 during the last payment cycle .
Now the beneficiaries will be going home with the sum of N15,000 each; N10,000 arrears of 2 months while N5,000 is for the current payment cycle.
The participants are therefore advised to remain posted, remain patiently and wait for the turn of their local government areas.
