Unpaid Wages: Account for N26b Paris Club Refunds, IGR, G42 Tells Okorocha

Unpaid Wages: Account for N26b Paris Club Refunds, IGR, G42 Tells Okorocha

Destiny Ugorji
Perplexed by the perennial non-payment of salaries and pensioners of Imo workers and retirees by the State government, a socio-political group, G42 Imo Liberation Forum has called on the Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to account for the over N26b Paris Club refunds he received from the Federal Government.

In a statement signed by the group’s Director of Publicity, Dr. Walter Duru and made available to newsmen Saturday, the group lamented the absence of accountability in the state, even as it frowned at the neglect for the welfare of workers and Pensioners in the State.

G42 sympathized with the family of the late Chairman of the National Union of Pensioners in the state, Mr. Gideon Ezeji, describing his death as unfortunate.

It further urged the state government to disclose the monthly revenue generated by the state internally and how it is being used.

“G42 Imo Liberation Forum is saddened by the news of the recent death of the Chairman of the National Union of Pensioners in Imo State, Mr. Gideon Ezeji. His death is most unfortunate, as he died in penury, caused by the irresponsible nature of governance in the State. Our investigations revealed that Mr. Ezeji died, holding his three (3) months bounced Cheque, issued by Imo State Government.”

“We are aware that there is an increase in mortality rate, hunger and sicknesses among pensioners in Imo State, owing to non-payment of their pensions and gratuities for over twelve months now. The development is made worse by the recent issuance of three months cheques in August that cannot be cashed till date. The initial criminal attempt by this same government to compel them to forfeit a huge chunk of the owed monies remains green in our minds.”

“Apart from the arrears owed Pensioners, Civil Servants in the state are owed several months of salary arrears by the state government. The infrastructural deficit in the state is so pronounced that Imo people are now ashamed of their state. The obvious hunger in the land notwithstanding; with the economy of the state almost collapsed, the present administration is more interested in the erection of meaningless statues and Christmas trees that have no relevance to the socio-economic wellbeing of the people. The debt profile of the state is also very high.”

“G42 Imo Liberation Forum, a socio-political mass movement in the state sees this as worrisome, considering the huge sums that have been received by the present administration, particularly, the Paris Refunds and Bailout funds.”

“We therefore demand an account of how the Imo State government under Chief Rochas Okorocha has expended the over twenty-six (N26b) Billion Naira bail out funds it received from the Central Bank of Nigeria. We also demand an account of the Internally Generated Revenue of the State, since the inception of the present administration. Imo State belongs to all of us and must not be run as an extension of Governor Rochas Okorocha’s private business empire.”

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my
    iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    direction of a good platform.
