A PDP gubernatorial aspirant in Cross River, Ima Nsa Adegoke has rebuked Cross River state politicians who interfere with the pension and gratuities of civil servants who have served the state, insisting that such leaders must pay for the act which she described as “wicked and unjust”.
The legal practitioner made the declaration while addressing PDP secretaries and vice chairmen at ward, local government and state levels in Calabar on her plans for the state if given the people’s mandate in 2023.
“The most important things in the civil service is to ensure computer literacy, payment of pensions and gratuities to all, so that they won’t retire and die.
“Politicians who have refused pensions and gratuities of civil servants who have served for 30 to 35 years, I tell you, the sword shall not depart from their houses; you cannot be wicked to all people who have served the state , it is unfair and unjust, and as for me I speak judgment concerning such wickedness; all those involved in that cartel, they will pay.
She said: “We do not need oil wells in Cross River: From Obanliku to Bakassi, we are endowed with so many riches; we have semi precious stones. We are coming with the shift agenda which means schools, hospitals, infrastructure, farms and technology, shift is the idea with which we will drive the economy of Cross River State to its desired height, and pride of place.
