Employees of the Cross River State government have began protests over the government’s inability to pay their salaries for over 3 months.
The aggrieved workers took to the state secretariat in Calabar as they blocked the gates and protested with placards that read, ” 3 years without salary. Who did we offend? Yet we go to work everyday, Governor Ayade pay us our salaries.”
According to reports several aides of the governor, including Commissioners, Special Advisers, Personal Assistants etc., are yet to get their pay for the month of August.
