Gov Okorocha Gets 60-day Ultimatum To Pay Imo State Workers

Ndigbo Unity Forum, an Igbo socio-cultural group, has given Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo an ultimatum of 60 days to pay workers outstanding salaries and allowances.

President of the forum, Mr. Augustine Chukwudum in a statement issued in Enugu, described as unfortunate Okorocha’s failure to pay workers after receiving bailout funds from the Federal Government.

Chukwudum accused Okorocha of diverting the bailout money and described the action the height of insensitivity in a democratic setting that holds a lot of good promises for the people.

“On South East, we observed that the Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo state notwithstanding bailout funds that run into billions that he received from the Federal Government that he still owes workers in the state many months salary.

“We demand that Gov. Rochas Okorocha should pay workers in Imo state their salary within sixty days,’’ it said.

The statement warned that coalition of civil societies would soon mobilise for the mother of all demonstration in Imo if the governor failed to heed the advice.
