HAPPENING NOW: Protest Against Ayade’s Delisting Of 3,000 Workers From State Payroll Enters Day 2

In Breaking News, National News, Reports

By Patrick Obia

The protest by dozens of civil and public servants who were delisted from the payroll of the Cross River State government in mid 2019 by Governor Ben Ayade has entered its second day.

About 3,000 names were delisted on allegations that they were ghost workers.

The Governor claimed their recruitment did not follow due process. But, the sacked workers disagree with some displaying their employment and confirmation letters.

After several meetings, pleas and warnings, the Niger Delta Activists Forum in the State led by Paul Ajie issued a seven day ultimatum to the State to reverse the action.

And, upon its elapse, those affected took to the streets and blocked the entrance to the new secretariat complex in Calabar which houses the offices of about half a dozen commissioners, the Head of Service, Local Government Service Commission and the Board of Internal Revenue.

Below are images from day two of the protest.
