Zamfara State House of Assembly has set up two separate committees to investigate the circumstances behind the non-payment of salary to civil servants in the State.
This was consequent upon a motion moved by Hon. Shamsu Hassan Basko representing Mafara North on the floor of the House on Tuesday.
Basko lamented that the civil servants were facing hardship as a result of the alleged ongoing verification exercise.
He urged the House to as a matter of urgency constitute a committee to investigate the circumstances under which the civil servants were denied their salary, including the Local Government workers and staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board.
The motion was seconded by Hon. Faruk Dosara and Hon. Nasir Maru.
After much deliberation, the lawmakers directed the House standing Committee on Finance and Appropriation and that of Local Government to investigate the problem associated with the non-payment of salaries of the State government workers and report back within 24 hours.
Hon. Haliru Kuturu is to head the committee on the State civil servants, while Hon. Hamisu A. Faru is to investigate the issues around the local government workers.
