Aggrieved workers in Imo State have continued to complain against the state government over their unpaid arrears.
Many of them were physically seen with protest letter which they submitted to the Head of Service office and reports have shown that many of the workers have not been paid since March 2020.
The aggrieved workers said their names were not included in the main list of the workers published by Imo State government in pages of newspapers.
They further revealed their ordeal in the hands of the state government since last year, the shared prosperity administration of Senator Hope Uzodinma came into power.
Many of the unpaid workers as we gathered, were senior staff of various ministries.
It could be recalled that government of Imo State made a press statement claiming that all genuine workers of Imo State have received their salaries uptil December the same thing applicable to pensioners.
Reports also revealed that majority of the unpaid workers and pensioners were alleged to have been in black book of the Imo State government.
The government of Imo State had come up with a declaration to prosecute those who have been receiving pension and salaries the same time and the other set of fraudsters who are said by using fictitious names to collect salaries and pensions.
The Attorney General of Imo State, Hon Barr C O C Akolisa as we gathered is now compiling the names of those alleged to be involved in pension and salaries fraud, for immediate prosecution.
However, some of the aggrieved workers strongly claimed that there was no ghost worker or pensioner in Imo State.
