The Organized Labour in Cross River State on Tuesday picketed the office of the Accountant General of the state over non-remittance of deductions made by them.

The labour unions ignored the Chief of Staff to Governor Ben Ayade, Mr. Martins Orim who had pleaded with protesters to exercise restraint

The union continued to block the Accountant General’s office over the deductions from workers’ salaries which labour claimed was not being remitted to the bank for those who borrowed from different banks.

The union is also angry over the refusal of the Accountant General to remit money deducted for housing purposes to mortgage banks.

However, the Accountant General, Mr. Joseph Adie had met with labour and promised to look into their case, promising that something would be done about it before the end of the day.

Meanwhile, the State Chairman, NLC, Mr. Ben Ukpebi, said the union decided to hear from the Accountant General but he did not solve the situation as promised.

“We arrived here today (Tuesday) only to discover that the AG did not do anything. So we are picketing his office and we will not listen to anybody until they meet our demands,” Ukpebi said.

But as they gathered in front of the gate, Martins Orim, the Governor’s Chief of Staff arrived to address them but

During the protest, the union shunned the Governor’s Chief of Staff, Martins Orim, who had arrived to address them, but they insisted on speaking with the governor.

Orim, however, arranged a meeting between the labour leaders and the governor by 11 am.

It was gathered that the office of the Accountant General has been deducting money from workers’ salaries for those who got loans from the various banks, but never remitted funds to the affected banks.
