Over 45 months of unpaid salaries caused ad hoc staff to disrupt operations at the Plateau State College of Health Technology in the state’s Pankshin Local Government Area yesterday.
At around 10 a.m., they blocked the institution’s main gate while holding signs that described their suffering.
Mr. Wambutda, their leader, called it disgusting that despite their hardship, there are constant staff substitutions in open jobs without giving the ad hoc workers any attention.
“The non-confirmation/absorption, continual replacement of staff, and non-payment of our stipend for 45 months are the reasons for the protest.
He stated, “The demonstration is a chance to draw the government’s and other relevant agencies’ attention to the injustice and unfair treatment we have endured in the institution for the last years.
The demonstrators vowed to keep up their activity until their demands were satisfied. The Provost of the College, Dr. Fwangje, did not return calls at the time of the news, therefore there was no official statement on the incident.
