Governor Ben Ayade has agreed to pay owed remittances to the organized labour in Cross River State as well as the two months arrears owed staff of the College of Health Technology, Calabar.

The labour unions had on Monday morning blocked access to the office of the Accountant General, Joe Adie for failing to pay remittances deducted from members to them as well as the decision to not pay staff of COHTECH for the months of November and December 2020.

They were other reasons, according to the Chairman of the Joint Action Committee, Joe Idiege.

They include:
1. Non remittance of deductions from Workers Salaries to Banks and Other Finance Houses

2. Workers Can’t access Facilities from Banks anymore due to failure of Government to remit Loans repayments.

3. Workers Can’t access Loans to Pay Rents anymore.

4. Workers Can’t access Facilities to Pay Children School Fees anymore

5. Even Mortgage Bank deductions from Workers Salaries are not being remitted.

The labour members who arrived as early as 6:00AM locked out Mr. Adie, his counterpart, the Auditor General, Joe Odey and other staff.

An aide to Mr. Ayade then proceeded to call him and place him on loudspeaker to speak to the labour leaders.

Despite informing him that letters have been sent to him, Mr. Ayade claimed that he was unaware of the issues raised by the labour unions and insisted the letter be given to him in person.

However, about an hour later, Mr. Ayade’s deputy, Professor Ivara Esu arrived and urged the labour unions to disperse promising that they will attend to their demands within 24 hours.
