The governor of Eastern Equatoria State Louis Lobong Lojore has called on the National government to effect equal payment of government employees throughout the Country be it at the national and State level.

Lobong made the appeal while addressing the sixth governor’s forum on Monday as reported by his press office.

 In the post seen by No.1 Citizens Daily Newspaper on Eastern Equatoria governor official Facebook page, Lobong argued there is a need for equal payment of civil servant all over the Country.

“How can people in the National Government be paid more then those in the States, do you want us to come to Juba, we need equal payment throughout South Sudan” he adjudicated.

In his submission at the governor’s forum, Lobong also urged the national government to allocate percentage of the revenues that accumulates from Nimule, Tsertenya and Nadapal to the people and government of Eastern Equatoria States.

“God has equally distributed resources to all parts of South Sudan. Some States have oil and we in the Eastern Equatoria have money-making borders (Nimule, Tsertenya and Nadapal), this to us are like Oil to other States, therefore, give us our share,” the governor demanded.

Lobong further advocated for establishment of “Borders Development Fund” to provide security and services to citizens living along the International borders to control border encroachment by the neighbors.
