The Organized Labour in Cross River state has kicked against deduction of N25, 000 from salaries of some senior civil servants following a directive allegedly given by the Office of the Head of Service of the State meant for Permanent Secretaries’ examination.

In a Press release, tagged Bulletin XXX, titled, ‘Payment of N25, 000 by Directors Purportedly for Permanent Secretaries Examination,’ and made available to Orient Daily Correspondent in Calabar, Tuesday, the Labour leaders warned against such deductions.

The release read, “Dear Comrade Directors, please be informed that the Organized Labour in the State is against the payment of N 25,000 or any other amount, purportedly for Permanent Secretaries’ Examination.

“It’s been brought to our knowledge that His Excellency, the Governor, had already approved N2, 000, 000 for same purpose. Note that two Permanent Secretaries were recently appointed without any form of Examination.

“On this note, we hereby advise all Directors not to part with any amount of money to the Head of Service and also to refuse any form of Examination planned by the Head of Service, as this is not in consonance with the policies of His Excellency, the Governor,” the release, which simply had on signed by Action Committee of the Organised Labour, read in part.
