“We have the mandate of the National President of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, to condemn such salary reductions/ deductions  from workers wages. 

“We call on Ebonyi State government to rather be more proactive in the measures for the reduction of suffering of the masses by improving and engaging in more meaningful and sustainable palliatives.”
