“With the release of these funds today (Monday, 4 March 2024), Governor Umo Eno, since coming to office nine months ago, has paid a total of 14.7 billion Naira in gratuities and leave grants for retired workers in the state.

“He had previously authorised the release of 12 billion Naira for the same purpose – a truly huge achievement.

“The payment of the gratuities and Leave Grant, coming at a time of harsh economic times affecting the nation, is indeed a welcome development and is expected to bring huge relief for the retired and serving workers and ring true the generally held definition of Governor Eno, as a people-centric leader,” Ekerete Udoh, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said in a statement.
