Workers under the auspices of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Plateau State chapter have expressed their anger with the state governor, David Jang for not paying their salaries for over a year but was out today to commission some projects they said he did not initiate.

The workers today, stopped the governor from inaugurating a radio station at the Jos campus of the Plateau State Polytechnic as they picketed the venue. The union leaders also prevented the governor from commissioning the new Revenue House of the Plateau State Internal Revenue Service.

The spokesman for the workers and chairman of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, Paul Dakogal, said: “It is inappropriate for Jang to commission any project. Jang did not contribute any resource in facilitating the project, how then can he commission it?

“When we heard that the governor planned to commission a radio station, among other projects in the state, in spite of the workers’ strike, we decided to stop that nonsense.

“He has not paid workers for more than a year; students are at home because of strike, yet he intended to commission projects.”

Dakogal said the union would not allow the inauguration of any project, even as he described the governor’s gesture as a move to add more feathers to his cap.

Dakogal maintained that the education sector in Plateau State had deteriorated in the past eight years of Jang’s administration in the state. [myad]
