Otti stated this on Wednesday as part of a speech to mark his First Anniversary in Office.
 
The governor stated that his administration has kept the bargain with senior citizens through regular and full payment of their entitlements.
 
He said: “We are, however, conscious of our promise and as soon as a headway is made, Abia will be amongst the first to pay whatever becomes the new national minimum wage. The patience, understanding and sacrifices of the workers are very much appreciated, and shall never be taken for granted.

“We have kept our bargain with our senior citizens through regular and full payment of their entitlements. Recently, it became a policy of the State Government to pay pensions before the 28th of every month and we have kept faith with that important obligation. The present Government in the State appreciates the place of the senior citizens and shall continue to prioritise their welfare.”
