Some aggrieved workers sacked by the Adamawa State Government have protested such a decision saying the decision to sack them was very inhuman.
Spokesman of the group Faisal Baba who addressed the press said they are owed seven months’ salary adding that this was done without genuine reasons.
He described the stand down letters issued as a result of the snag in development by the state government as letters given to poor civil servants by some merciless, pitiless and ruthless groups of individuals including the Governor and his team, the visitation panel team inclusive of the State Polytechnic Rector.
The workers who earlier on the 2nd of October, 2019 said since that protest the Governor and his team have refused to show concern on them.
But according to the aggrieved sacked workers, as law abiding citizens, they remained peaceful and calm by engaging themselves on follow up reminder visits.
They however accused the NLC, traditional rulers, and religious leaders of not intervening in their plight.
And they added, “Even the Adamawa State House of Assembly are afraid in taking action which was expected of them”.
The head of Service, Adamawa State Government, Dr Sunday Amos Edga in a reaction said those recruited after October 2018 should consider themselves sacked.
Edga however said those affected by the sack but who were employed in 2016 are to be verified while those not qualified as lecturers of the State Polytechnic as in the case on ground now would be posted to the post primary board for posting to the relevant agencies.
