Unpaid salaries: Labour Party tells Buhari to 'do away' with Ortom

Written By Idoma Television on Thursday, June 25, 2015 | 12:15:00 AM

Following the inability of some states to pay civil servants' salaries, the National Secretary of the Labour Party, Kayode Ajulo, has called on the Federal Government to take over the administration of such states.

The party named Osun and Benue as top states currently owing their workers more than seven months.

In a statement issued in Lagos, Ajulo, who doubles as Founder and Chairman of the Egalitarian Mission for Africa, said the Federal Government should not shy away from taking over administration of the two states.

He insisted that the inability of the governor to pay workers contravened Sections 128 and 129 of the 1999 Constitution.

“The situation is very unfortunate, it is inexplicable and I am more particular with what is happening in Osun State.

“Imagine owing workers up to eight months salaries and going to nine months while some are owed 12 months pension.

“This is worrisome; the situation is worse than Boko Haram insurgency and I won’t hesitate to say that the situation in Osun and Benue States call for declaration of state of emergency,” Ajulo said.
