A protest by the civil servants in Adamawa state shut the front of the government house in Yola for several hours as they demand the removal of three government officials from office.

The protesters, led by the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mr Dauda Maina, were calling for the Chairman of the Adamawa State Primary Healthcare Agency, Dr Abdullahi Bele, the Executive Secretary Adamawa State Post Primary School Board, Mallam Abdullahi Jingi and the General Manager of Adamawa State Transport Company, Mr Ahmed Nyako.

Mr Maina accused the trio of causing friction between the government and the workers saying their call for dismissal was based on their anti workers stance.

He alleged that the on-going health workers strike in the state was caused by the executive chairman of the state primary healthcare agency, Dr Abdullahi Belel.

“Abdullahi Jingi of post primary school board and Ahmed Nyako of Adamawa transport company are also engaged on persecuting their workers and we want them removed before they ruin the good image of this government,” Maina said.

The Secretary to the state government, Dr Umar Bindir, while addressing the protesters, said the governor had traveled to Abuja.

“I will be joining him and will communicate your message and demands to him. I want to assure you that by next week when the governor returns from the meeting of the Progressives Governors Forum in Kaduna, the matter will be looked into,” Bindir said.
