The Adamawa Government led by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has said that the government would not be able to pay workers in the state the new minimum wage as a result of the economic crunch imposed by the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.


This was made official through a press statement signed by the governor’s Director of Communication and Media, Mr Solomon Kumangar said the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the government from paying the consequential adjustment of the national minimum wage agreed upon and duly signed with the joint trade unions.


The statement further said that the government is committed to paying the consequential adjustment with the backlog/arrears as soon as COVID-19 and its negative economic implications abate.


“It should be noted that the government decided on this and other cost-saving measures to enable it to undertake basic services.


“Finally, the government assures that the welfare of the workforce remains paramount and the centrepiece of Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri’s cardinal agenda,” the statement said

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has commended Turkish Government and her people for their bold support for the restoration of Biafra.

A statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Mr. Emma Powerful said the Turkish Government and her citizens publicly pledged to put in motion, an effective strategy that will help in the restoration of Biafra and to also facilitate the release of its leader, Kanu and others detained illegally.

The group stated: On April 7, 2017, the Turkish Government in Ankara extended its good hand of recognition to the people of Biafra in Turkey and our supreme leader, Nnamdi Kanu who has been the subject of illegal and humiliating incarceration in Kuje Prisons, Abuja.

It must be stated for the benefit of those who do not know that Kanu has, on two separate occasions been granted bail, one of which is an unconditional release by two separate courts of competent jurisdiction. Despite the fact that court orders are legally binding laws, President Muhammadu Buhari and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami have refused to obey these orders.

This welcome recognition and support from the Turkish Government and her citizens prove to the world that the unique model of liberation adopted by our leader is yielding the desired results. This is because Biafra is presently at an unprecedented height, both in terms of global acceptability and grassroots awareness, never witnessed before.

Turkish Government also promised IPOB members under the leadership of Kanu that they will take the struggle for Biafra independence to the United Nations and other relevant organisations in the world.

Turkish Government and her citizens have opened the way for other conscientious countries of the world to stand bold to defend the oppressed people of Biafra in Nigeria. Powerful stated.
