In Breaking News, Politics

By Patrick Obia

“We only made an appeal to the governor to please help delay salaries payment for two weeks so we can work on this (fish out party members engaged in anti-party activities).”

The above are the words of the State Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Cross River State chapter, Alphonsus Eba, Esq saying he had appealed to Governor Ayade to only delay the salaries of civil servants in the State by two weeks as Mr. Ayade continues to vent his anger after the 2023 polls.

Some civil servants in the State are complaining of withheld salaries, making it difficult to survive.

Mr. Eba said he can only mediate for salaries to be paid, adding that the servants are not part of those who betrayed the governor during the elections.

“I can only rise to appeal to the governor to just pay civil servants because we have nothing to do with them and even political appointees. Those that have done well we should not punish them on the altar of those that misbehave. I just want to appeal for salaries to be paid while we take this time to work gradually on this.

“The punishment that awaits them is that anybody that is found capable will not make the next government; we will document their names if they like, let them go to any voodoo and bring any charm. We can’t continue to tolerate this nonsense. I must apologize to Civil Servants who gave their all and are expecting something. We gave two weeks and those two weeks are already here. It will be paid very soon,” he said while answering questions from the Press.
