.He explained that some of the errors included reduction in salaries of some servants  instead of increment based on the promotion.

Iya noted that some servants were not paid according to their latest promotion.The labour leader directed workers with challenges regarding the implementation of  their promotion to forward their grievances to their various Ministries, Departments and Agencies onward submission to the Head of Service.

He  also appealed to government to implement the promotions of staff of the state-owned tertiary institutions as well influence that of local government workers  to avoid disharmony in the state.He noted that without Local Government workers, there be no State or Federal Government.Iya, therefore, admonished servants in the state to redouble their commitment to duty as a way of showing appreciation to the governor his understanding and support.
