|Coronavirus: Workers Ordered To Go Home In Imo Without Salary by NJPot(m): 6:23pm On Apr 07, 2020|
Following the closure of markets by the Imo State government to help forestall the spread of coronavirus, Imolites have called for the immediate payment of March salary.
Some citizens of the state who expressed their feelings yesterday during a radio programme on Hot 99.5 FM (Peoples Assembly), allayed fear that the masses especially workers may not have enough fund to feed their families hence calling on the state governor, Sen Hope Uzodinma to quickly approve the payment of workers salary, particularly for the month of March.
It could be recalled that Governor Uzodinma through the commissioner for information, Hon Declan Emelumba in a press briefing shortly after the exco meeting ordered for a total shut down of all private schools sending students and staff home for fear of coronavirus.
The Governor who earlier gave the order through his state broadcast to Imolites, said the shutting down of schools, was in line with the preventive measures proposed by the world Health organization, which is expected to curb the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 virus.
Trumpeta also gathered that the weight mounted on the executive governor of the State, spurred him to order for the closure of all major markets in the State from the morning of Saturday, March 28.
Meanwhile, the date for the closure of markets have further been postpone till Sunday, March 29.
These latest development apparently did not go down well with some people who took to the media to make demands. A trader who pleaded anonymity told Trumpeta that salary have not been paid and there are no palliatives for the citizens to purchase basic needs, he equally expressed fear over the impact of the Governor’s order on non-salary earners, saying that scores of people may die from hunger amidst coronavirus pandemic.

Uzodimma is running Imo State with propaganda and lies. He announced that he has ordered for the payment of workers since 25 of march. This is April 7 and no one has received any payment. We have entered another one chance in Imo State.
