Rivers Workers Protests Non Payment of the Promised N100k Christmas Bonus

Rivers Workers Protests Non Payment of the Promised N100k Christmas Bonus
Siminalayi Fubara
Not less than 100 teachers from both Primary abs Secondary schools employed by the Rivers State Government stormed the Rivers State Government House today to protest non-payment of their N100,000 Christmas bonus as approved by Governor Siminalayi Fubara of the State.

Recall that Governor Fubara announced N100,000 Christmas bonus to be paid to all the civil servants in Rivers State alongside their December salary.

The protesting teachers revealed that their colleagues had received their bonus alongside the December salaries but their own bonus refused to drop. They, therefore, asked the state government to give a reason for their ordeal.

Speaking to journalists on Friday, one of the teachers simply identified as Oke said, “We were so happy when we heard that the governor approved a N100,000 Christmas bonus for all civil servants. So we assumed that the last Christmas was going to be very great for us.

“But as we speak today, this is January, a few of us as you can see, have not received the Christmas bonus.

“On Monday, schools will be resuming. Most of us traveled and we have returned.

“We have exhausted all we have. So we are here this morning to register our complaints to our dear loving governor to help us talk to those who are holding our Christmas bonus.

“Our N100,000 Christmas bonus should be released because it will go a long way in cushioning the effect of the hardship, especially this January.”

Others, who spoke to the Leadership Newspaper, accused their banks and the State Universal Basic Education Board of failing to address the matter.

An official of the government, who addressed the protesting teachers, commended them for their peaceful disposition and assured them that their complaints would be looked into.
