Numerous workers engaged in various MDA’s under the Cross River Civil Service Commision have stayed for over 12 months since their employment without salaries.
According to reports, these staff were issued appointment letters since February 2018, did the mandatory image capturing and were posted to various MDAs but for 12 months now they have stayed with no salaries.
It is rather shocking that Governor Ben who strives to build his political empire around civil servants through timely payment of salaries and appointment of thousands of young people into government as aides, seem not to be working as this newly recruited workers in the state government employ are demanding that their rights and privileges be met fully.
The MDA’s involved include the Ministries of Special duties, Health, New Cities, Boarder Commission ,Civil service Commission,Head of Service and others
It is therefore pertinent that the Governor addresses this pending issue and indeed show that he is labour-friendly
