Hope Uzodinma withdraws Civil Servants buses

0

…as month ends without payment of salaries.

Senator Hope Uzodinma have ordered the withdrawal of the buses, he distributed for the transportation of civil servants in the state.

Uzodinma had announced the circulation of luxury buses, to help convey civil servants in the state, to and from work, while about N3000 was deducted fr their salaries for the service.

Many civil servants had condemned the action, stating that not every civil servant used the buses, as some of them live at areas, the buses did not operate.

Their rejection of the policy however fell on deaf ears, as Uzodinma went ahead with the bus programme, as well as deducting part of the workers salaries for the programme.

A circular made available to Verbatim News yesterday, showed that the Hope Uzodinma Government, had ordered the withdrawal of the buses till further notice.

The circular instructed the drivers, to take the buses to the State Secretariat and drop them there.

No reason was given for the directive from the state government.

There have been heightened tension in the state recently, following attacks by unknown gunmen, which included the burning of Hope Uzodinma’s country home.

Uzodinma had cancelled his plans to return to the state following the violence, and have remained in Abuja since then.

As the month comes to an end, salaries are yet to be paid, as has become a trend since Uzodinma became govenror, when payment of salaries is delayed sometimes for weeks into the next month, unlike under Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha when salaries were paid on the 25th of the month.
