Rivers - The Rivers State Chapter of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) decried the failure by the state government to pay civil servants for the month of July.
In a statement, Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media to the Rivers State Chairman, accused the government of insensitive to the plight of the civil servants.
“The leadership of the party in the state has been undergoing agony over unpaid salaries for July, almost two weeks into the new month and without explanations on why they have not been paid.
Civil Servants should not be made to suffer the mistakes of inefficient state administrators,” Needam said.
Needam alleged Rivers State government was now resorting to pleading with banks to help them praise money to pay the servants.
It has been reported that two banks have agreed to bail government out but less than half of the workforce has been able to receive their salaries.
Nadeem said the failure to receive payments had inconvenienced some works during the just-ended Salah Muslim holidays.
It could not be ascertained why the state government had failed to pay the salaries.
