From Sule Aliyu, Bauchi
Bauchi State Government has settled the seven months unpaid salary to over 100 Zaranda Hotel workers as part of its effort to support the Hotel regain its lost glory and to restore the confidence of the workers.
Newly-appointed General Manager of the Hotel, Hajiya Asabe Ibrahim Musa stated this when she interacted with reporters recently in the state, saying: “It will also be recalled that we inherited substantial liabilities in the form of unpaid workers’ remuneration from previous administrations, decay in the hotel infrastructure and services. However, since government is continuity we have continued to treat those liabilities as ours and to tackle them as much as we can from our own meager income.”
Musa said “when I was appointed as General Manager, payment of salaries owed to workers is the most pressing issue before me, even though there were issues inherited by the present administration of
Senator Bala Abdulkadir Muhammad from the previous administrations in state in this hotel but the major problem is the issue of the welfare of workers that are unsolved, but today we thank the Almighty Allah we are able to settle the seven to eight months salaries of Zaranda Hotel workers; we are presently paying them with the support of the State Governor and the State Commissioner of Commerce. We have finally settled the remaining unpaid salaries due to our genuine workers.”
