Imo workers reject Okorocha’s electronic payment

Trouble seems to be looming between Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha and the state chapter of the Nigeria labour congress (NLC) over move by the state government to conduct a biometric verification of workers in the state.

The state government also planned to commence electronic payment for the workers and re-implementation of staff payroll.

But the Imo state NLC leadership has rejected the entire programme, stressing that it will make the workers redundant and would have great effect on the public service.

In a statement, the Imo NLC chairman, Comrade Austin Chilakpo, said that while the programme is unacceptable to the entire workers, the policy should be left for the incoming administration to consider and implement if necessary.”

The union also urged the state government to pay the February 2019 salary to the workers without further delay, especially for the parastatal workers in the state.
