A statement issued Tuesday, and made available to Global Village Extra by Ibim Semenitari, the state?s information Commissioner, states that Governor Amaechi holds members of the Rivers State House of Assembly in high regard.

?Having served in that same House for 8 years, he appreciates the strategic role of the Assembly in ensuring that government is held accountable to its electorate and will work with them to guarantee the rights of all Rivers people.

?The Rivers State Government also wishes to reiterate the fact that it is committed to paying civil servants their hard earned pay because it is their due and not a privilege. It is however important for government to confirm that it has paid salaries of its workers for the month of March
and will very soon commence the payment of April salaries.

?Once again government wishes to appreciate the kind understanding of Rivers workers as it strives to ensure that it meets its obligations to them.
