Civil servants in Kogi State, have made a special appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari, to intervene in the case of their prolonged non-payment of salaries by the Governor Yahaya Bello-led administration of the State.
This was contained in a statement jointly released on Wednesday, in Lokoja, by the State chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC; Trade Union Congress, TUC; and the Joint Public Service Negotiating Council.
The workers specifically requested that the President directs the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA,  and other humanitarian agencies to send them food, drugs, and other relief materials.
They also called on  Buhari to consider the condition of their children, who they said had been sent out of school because they could no longer pay their school fees.




The civil servants revealed that they were being owed between 11 and 21 months salaries.
“The situation of workers in the State is worse than the condition of the Internally Displaced Persons in various camps.
“The agony of the workers is not in any way less than the experiences of victims of natural disasters.
“A situation where workers cannot afford even one meal a day and pay the school fees of their children, is already a humanitarian issue.
“As it stands today, over 30 percent of the workforce is owed 21 months salaries. Twenty percent have unpaid salaries of between 11 and 18 months, while about 45 percent took their salaries up till June this year.
“These are the category of workers the Kogi State Government is forcing to embrace the ‘clock-in, clock-out’ work policy”, the workers said.
They also begged the indigenes of the State at home and abroad, to show concern and assist them in whatever form they could.
