Over 70 Civil Servants in Cross River State embark on a peaceful protest over Delistment from Government payroll and denial of salary.

More than 70 civil servants from different Ministries Departments and Agencies at about 8am today staged a peaceful protest slowing down movement of vehicles at the MM High way and locking the gates of the state Secretariat with displays of placards having various inscriptions, calling on the state governor Prof Ben Ayade to re-instate their names on the payroll, pay their arrears and full salaries.

Speaking with our correspondent the chairman of the Niger Delta activist forum Mr. Paul Ajie said the governor has failed in his promise to ensure no cross Riverian goes to bed hungry.

Others who are also victims of the delistment call on the State government to come to their aid as they are unable to pay their rents and provide for their families.

The protest is coming following the expiration of the 7 days ultimatum given to the Cross River state government by the Niger Delta activist forum over the erroneous delistment of over 2,500 civil servants from the state payroll.
