He said the protest was to draw the attention of the concerned authority to come to their aid by ensuring that they get their money as at when due.

“All those who are yet to be paid have already reported to their respective places of primary assignment.

“We have reported to the authority at the various local government areas, yet nothing was done about it hence the need for the protest.

“Maybe they are not reporting the case to the appropriate authority, but with this protest now the authority will be aware that something like this is going on,” he said

NAN reports that the protesters were accompanied by security agencies while no government official came out to address them.
