Moreover, the Inuwa Yahaya’s administration paid billions of naira to settle outstanding pensions and gratuities inherited from previous administration, with the intention to clear all outstanding pensions and gratuities as part of respect for the civil servants – the people he believes deserve to live in comfort and dignity after retirement.
Gov. Inuwa Yahaya with exemplary leadership style, being a man of honour, has severally assured the civil servants in the state of his administration’s unwavering commitment to provide socio-economic development to improve the well-being of people.

Keeping to his promises, Gov. Inuwa Yahaya released 1.5 billion naira and the 775 million naira respectively for the payment of first and second tranches of gratuities arrears to retired civil servants in the State, as acknowledged by the Chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Gombe state chapter, Comrade Adamu Musa during the 2021May Day celebration in the state.
