Abia state Hospitals Management Board Shutdown Offices Over 11 Months Unpaid Salaries

The workers of Abia state Hospitals Management Board (HMB), a parastal under the state’s ministry of health, Umuahia on Monday protested the backlog of salaries numbering about 11 months owed them.

Some of the protesting workers alleged that the government stopped paying them since the month of May, 2016 for undisclosed reason.

The protesters barricaded the busy Aba road, close to the government house, carrying various placards with different inscriptions. The protest caused very slow movement of traffic in the capital city.

Comrade Ejike Patric O. the medical and health workers chairman, of HMB revealed to ABN TV the reason of the protest.

“As you can see from our placards that we have not been paid for barely eleven months, by the end of this September it will be one year. We receive our last salary in September 2018.” Comrade Ejike said.
