Suspended Civil Servants Petition Okowa Over Irregularities

Some suspended civil servants resident in Delta State has petitioned Governor Ifeanyi Okowa over irregularities.



The Governor has initially suspended 3,000 civil workers in 2014 after Uduaghan’s tenure over irregularities but placed a committee to watch over this working class citizens.


Although through the committee, a total of 450 workers were reinstated but the other states men are not happy being unemployed.


The Chairman and the Secretary of the group, Clement Erhadje and Victor Asini, respectively, in a petition to the Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, the Commissioner of Police, the Nigerian Union of Journalists, the Nigerian Bar Association, and the Department of State Services, appealed to the state government to come to their aid.



The petition against okowa reads thus :


“It came as a shock to us that out of the names of the 450 people reinstated, over 80 per cent of them did not apply for the job in 2015. Also, they did not have appointment letter in 2015 and most of them just graduated two years ago.


“How come people who did not apply for the job in 2015 were reinstated and given the job and people who applied for the job were not reinstated? It is obvious that it was highly influenced politically and money was used to buy the slots of the original owners (2015 suspended civil servants).”
