The Kogi State House of Assembly has summoned the committee screening the state workforce to appear before it, on Thursday to explain circumstances for non-payment of genuine workers.
The house issued the summon Tuesday in a resolution at plenary on resumption from recess.
This followed the adoption of a motion by a member, Sunday Shigaba (PDP- Bassa), over the outcry of hardship being experienced by civil servants in the state over non-payment of salaries.
Shigaba said the screening had become a very serious matter as civil servants from across the state were complaining of hardships.
Speaker of the house, Umar Imam, said the process had brought hardship to everybody, adding that even though government had good intentions, the process had brought untold hardships to the civil servants.
``In fact, it is with great concern that the intended goodwill of the government for this exercise is turning something else.
“The committee should, therefore, be summoned to this house to explain or brief us on what is happening,’’ he said.
The motion was adopted following over-whelming voice vote by the 20 members at plenary.
