Hundreds of ad-hoc staff who sweep the roads for the Calabar Urban Development Authority (CUDA) are protesting in Calabar, the Cross River State capital over unpaid salaries.

The women who are paid only NGN7,500 per month, say they have been owed for six months and tricked by the Commissioner for Environment, Mfon Bassey as well as their supervisor, Eno Edem.

The women, half of whom are aged marched from the Efio- Ette round down to Murtala Mohammed highway.

At the old Secretariat complex, special forces in not less than four trucks fire teargas to disperse the women as they were about entering the old Secretariat.

Most of them said they are widows with children who depend on the token given to them for survival, still sweep on daily yet nothing to show for.

Watch the video below:

They disclosed that they have been called and promised and most times they end up been verbally abused by their supervisor, Mrs Eno.

The women who further disclosed they use their money to buy brooms and parkers and other tools needed for their job, called on Governor Ben Ayade to come to their aid.

Below are images from the protest…
