Abuja COVID-19 Response Team On Strike Over Non-payment Of Allowances by obembet(f): 8:28am On Jun 03, 2020
Members of the federal capital territory (FCT) COVID-19 emergency response team are currently protesting against the non-payment of their N30,000 daily allowance for April and May

Among those being owed are sample collectors, case investigators, ambulance drivers, environmental health worker, temperature readers and cleaners.

On Tuesday, they converged on the public health department office, Area 3, Garki, Abuja, demanding that the outstanding allowance should be paid before they return to work.

With 674 cases, the nation’s capital has the third highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Lagos has 5,135 cases, the highest, followed by Kano, 958 infections. Nigeria has a total of 10,578 cases.

Below are pictures of the protesting workers:

They will be paid. The House of Reps has just approved a $22bn loan.

But on a serious note, Nigerians need to upgrade their IQ. When something sounds too good to be true, you should ask questions. This is a country where the government struggles to pay N30k minimum wage, and you were promised N30k daily allowance, that's about N900k per month.

Common sense should let you know that there's something fishy about it.
