Ministry Of Finance Workers Protest, Demand Adeosun’s Removal by deantimes(m): 1:31pm On Jun 20, 2016
The Workers of the Ministry of Finance on Monday embarked on a protest.
They are demanding the removal of the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun.
Their grouse, it was learnt, is over the non-payment of what they termed their allowances, which amounted to N1.2 billion.
The equally accused Adeosun of collecting her own allowances without any consideration for theirs.
One of such allowances, they alleged, was the N30 million for house rent annually.
They equally said she was high handed.
However, sources within the ministry said the protest was unwarranted.
The Permanent Secretary, Mahmud Isa-Dutse, said the N1.2 billion was an illegal payment that the workers have been receiving at the beginning of the year before now.
The money is said not to be captured in the Ministry’s 2016 Budget, hence Adeosun’s position not to pay the staff the sum.
A source close to Adeosun in the Ministry said there was no basis for the workers’ protest.
He said the Ministry was not owing the workers salary.
He said the only salary yet to be paid was that of June, which is not yet due for payment.
He described the demand for the N1.2 billion as “illegal” as it was not captured in the 2016 Budget.
As at press time, policemen have been deployed to the Ministry to prevent the protest from getting out of hand.
The protesters were restricted to the space within the Ministry.
They were not allowed to get onto the road.
Among the placards the workers had with them were those that read: “Kemi Adeosun must go”; “You are destroying Federal Ministry of Finance”; “Inflation is 15% courtesy of Adeosun”; “PMB agent of positive change, Adeosun agent of negative change”; “Adeosun score card is zero”; and “Adeosun collects N30m house rent.”

Hypocrisy is when she collects her own allowance.

Charity begins at home. Unfortunately, descendants of Afonjas will never be honest for once.

The protesting workers must be sick. The era where some federal workers in some powerful ministries get illegal allowances is over. All allowances not captured in the appropriation act or recognized by extant regulations is illegal and should not be paid.

Many such an official, upon winning a foothold in City Hall, thinks only of his own cohorts, and his own gain. So it is not surprising that public affairs grow stagnant. Truly, cannot fathom such minds! I can think of nothing so satisfying as doing public good in as many ways as an official can. Think, for an instant, as to just what a city is. As I said long ago, it is not an array of buildings, parks and fountains. No. A city is a living thing! It is, actually, human;for it is a group of humanity growing up in daily contact; and if officials adopt as a slogan, “all I can do,” and not “all I can grab,” only its suburban boundary can limit its growth.
Ernest Vincent Wright, Gadsby







Nothing more to add.
Bad habits die hard. Go to any ministry in this country probably less than 20% of those employed have something to do .
The rest idle away and at the end of the month, pick up a salary.
The only reason you can give for keeping them is the politicians will waste and/or steal any savings gained from mass retrenchment.
