EGBULA: Physically Challenged Imo Worker Begs Uzodinma To Pay His 4yrs Salary “M y children don’t go to school anymore”

A physically challenged person, Mr. Hilary Egbula, has appealed to the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma to come to his aid over his four-year unpaid salary.

Egbula, who spoke to newsmen in Owerri, said that he resorted to using  the Press after all efforts to get his salary failed.

According to him, the first salary he was given on the assumption of the present administration was in March, 2020. Subsequently he received that of May, June, July and October. But from February 2021 till date, he has not received any salary from authorities of Ideato South local government area of Imo State where he presently works as a Higher Executive Officer in the accounts department.

He said, “My name is Egbula Hilary Ndubuisi, from Ekitiafor Abba in Nwangele LGA. I was born on March 27, 1973. I was first appointed on October 8, 2002 in the accounts department of Ideato South LGA, Imo state. I am currently working as Higher Executive Officer on, Grade Level: 8.

My account number is  2008079789.

“I have been receiving my salaries until the present administration came in. I received staggered salaries in March, May, June, July and October of 2020 and from February 2021 till date my salary stopped coming. I was not given any reason nor was I laid off. I have been working since then.

“I have made several efforts by participating in all the screening exercises undertaken by the state government, including the biometric capturing. I was given Imo number 08874469626 filling the form given to all civil servants by the Imo State government through the office of the accountant general.

“I went to the Accountant General’s office and they directed me to the Data Centre.  The Data Centre on their own told me that they were on it.  My name falls within the ranges of number 80 & 90 on the Imo State website under Ideato South Local Government workers.

“I scaled through after so many verifications organized by  the Imo State government supervised by chairman of the Local Government Service Commission, Mrs Izuogu.

I am surprised that they have not been paying me while the state gave me double promotion in the last promotional exercise. My file number is LGSC/E/P.2333.

“I am appealing to Governor Hope Uzodinma to use his good offices to ensure that I get my salary. I have been living off friends and family members and some of my children have dropped out of school because I could not pay their school fees. Please, my beloved governor, come to my aid as I am physically challenged and cannot do much to help myself,” Egbula pleaded.
