Pointing accusing fingers on Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) of perpetrating pay roll fraud in Bayelsa state is vague but rather government should look within the state Government House for solution.
A social activist in the state, Dr. Welson Ekiyor corrected this assertion while exchanging views with newsmen in Yenagoa.
According to him, no victim of payroll fraud so far has been found wanting after Governor Henry Seriake Dickson conducted several local government staff verification exercises since he came into power in 2012.
He said the government’s plan to sack 6,000 staffers of local government councils in Bayelsa state is uncalled for as the brains behind in government house appointed to conduct the verification exercises may have responsible for the pay roll fraud, adding that the hunter is been hunted.
According to him, the Campaign for Democracy and Development in Bayelsa (CDDB) is solidly behind NULGE to fight the good fight against the proposed sacking of the 6,000 staff.
He also condemned recent press statement, saying that the Bayelsa state government is not owing workers salary which he described as a film trick.
Dr. Ekiyor also backed the stand by the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) in the state over the issue of unpaid local staffers owe by the state government.
The University Don said he collected his last salary was forJune 2017, adding that there’s no iota of truth about the state government press statement claim.
He advised Governor Dickson to be careful about his actions because he’s unleashing too much terror on Bayelsans, therefore, he should look before he leaps.
Bayelsa state, he claimed, is the least populated state and also the 4th highest state that receiving allocations from the federation account but yet cannot pay salary as at when due.
