Over 400 workers in Kogi State protested alleged non-payment of their 29 months salar
workers urged the State government to prevail on the council’s management to pay the salaries.
The workers, in a statement signed by three of them - Linus Alfred Onu, Oguche Emmanuel and John Oche, alleged that they had not been paid their salaries in the last 29 months.
They, therefore, said that they were not afraid being sacked, but the local government administration must be transparent in discharge of its duties.
The workers claimed that since they had not been sacked or suspended for any offence, they asked the local government administration to pay them their money.
They alleged that the local government education secretary refused to comply with the High Court order which directed that their money should be paid.
The workers said that they had endured enough for 29 months and if nothing was done, they would protest to the Government House
They, therefore, urged Governor Idris Wada not allow his transformation agenda to be thwarted by “the greed of some senior workers in the State education service.”
They also called on the Head of service, Accountant- General of the State and other stakeholders to prevail on the education secretary of Olamaboro Local Government Area to pay the money.
When contacted on phone, the education secretary said the matter was receiving attention and that he had instruction to lay the workers off.
Asked to mention who ordered that the workers be laid off, he declined comment.
