Ebonyi State Governor, Francis Nwifuru has declared a Christmas bonus of one hundred thousand naira for all state workers to ensure they celebrate the yuletide happy. 

The announcement came during the ‘Renewed Hope Initiative Christmas Party’ on Friday, where the governor expressed his commitment to the welfare of employees.

Addressing the gathering, Governor Nwifuru said, ‘Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, I have resolved with the caucus and also the principal officers of government yesterday when I came in that every worker in Ebonyi state government—not local government.

‘I’m not managing local government; I’m going to have a meeting with the council chairman this evening. Every worker must get 100,000 naira from us,’ he announced.

The Eastern Updates reports that this development follows a similar move by Governor Fubara of Rivers State, who approved an N100,000 bonus for each civil servant, cutting across employees across various ministries, departments, and agencies in the state.

Remarkably, this marks a significant occasion for Rivers State, as it is the first time in a considerable period that civil servants in the state will be receiving Christmas bonuses of such magnitude.

Governor Fubara’s consistent emphasis on improving the welfare of civil servants and catering to the needs of low-income earners has also been echoed in this substantial holiday gesture.

In another report, a bill seeking the establishment of the South East Development Commission has passed third reading at the House of Representatives, The Eastern Updates reports.

This move is happening fifty-three years after the Nigerian civil war.

The House unanimously took the decision at the Committee of the Whole chaired by the deputy speaker, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, after considering the report of the bill.

Standing in Kalu’s name as the lead sponsor and indeed, all the lawmakers from the South East region, the explanatory memorandum of the bill stated that the Commission will be charged with the responsibility to receive and manage fund from allocation of the Federation Account for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of roads, houses and other infrastructural damages suffered by the region as a result of the effect of the civil war.
