Workers in Adamawa state have accused Governor Mohammed Bindow of deducting over N300 million from their January salary for political reasons.
The workers were said to have alleged that their salaries were slashed without notice, either from the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) or their departments.
Investigations revealed that the deductions were meant to fund the campaign rally of President Muhammadu Buhari.
They added that the money would be used to hire crowds from the 21 councils to create the impression that the president has supporters in the state. “After my investigation from the ministry of finance, I discovered that our salaries were deducted to fund the president’s campaign rally taking place in Yola on Thursday, February 7,” one of the workers who crave anonymity said..
