Lagos - The players of FC Taraba on Monday stormed the Taraba State
Government House to demand for their unpaid salaries running eleven months.
Players of the Nigeria National League club claim they have not been paid
salary for the past 11 months and could therefore not bear it any longer and so
their protest march to seat of power in Taraba State.
A player, who would not want his name mentioned for obvious reasons, said the
team had no other choice than to go and meet the people who have direct access
to the funds to tell them what is happening.
“We are tired of the whole thing. For the past 11 months we have been working
and no pay, so we decided to see the commissioner and governor to tell us what
is the problem,” he reported in a chat with News24 in Jalingo.
“We need to hear from them, we need our money.”
“The authorities haven't been sincere with their handling of this issue and we
are not happy with this unfortunate development.
The Taraba State sports commissioner addressed the protesting players.
Players of the team have reportedly resolved to pass the night at the
Government and ensure that their demands are met.
