24 hours after the ad-hoc staff who sweep the roads for the Calabar Urban Development Authority, CUDA, staged a peaceful protest and barricaded the Governor’s Office in Calabar over their four months unpaid salaries, the Cross River State Government has bowed to pressure, by paying one out of the four months arrears.

The women, who were gathered under the scorching sun in the premises of the Water Board Limited, were called in one after the other.

They were told to collect the one month salary which is 10,000 and get back to work, while the remaining three months will be paid before May 29th, 2023.

The women were also advised to sweep and keep the city of Calabar clean, to help convince the governor to release the three months salaries left.

The sweepers who were disgruntled about the one-month payment agreed to get back to work, but added that they will not hesitate to stage another peaceful demonstration, if dribbled again.
