For the second day running, workers of the Ministry of Finance continued their protest shutting down all entrances to the headquarters of the ministry over unpaid N1.2 billion special overtime allowance.
A statement released on Monday by the ministry said the workers’ demands which were stopped in 2014, do not exist in the Civil Service Rules and Financial Regulations. But the workers have remained adamant to the explanation, insisting on the payment of what they claimed are their entitlements.
Unlike on Monday, when the workers allowed some skeletal services to go on while their protest lasted, business activities were on Tuesday completely paralysed as all the offices in the ministry were shut.
The workers in their hundreds stayed out of their offices from 8am when they resumed work and vowed not to attend to any official assignment until the arrival of the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun.
They said the protest would continue until the minister is either removed or their allowances paid. (Independent)
