One of the chieftains of the APC in Imo and Orlu in particular, Dr. Ikenna Ihezuo has condemned in its entirety, the last Monday’s attack on Imo Governor’s Convoy by youths suspected to be staff of ISOPADEC.
Governor Uzodinma’s convoy as reported by Imo State police command was attacked by the said workers who claimed that the state Government has owned them over three months salaries.
Speaking to Lead, Ihezuo who contested for the 2019 Federal House Of Representative for Orlu, Orsu, and Oru East noted that indeed, a worker deserves his wage which according to him is constitutional and biblical adding that such does not warrant attack or physical combat to achieve.
According to the American trained constitution Lawyer, he opined that there are laid down rules and procedures through which a worker or workers who are owed salaries should follow and be paid and not through physical combat or attack.
Ihezuo who made it clear that workers who are being owned would first report to their heads or leadership who would report their grievances to the state Government and where the Government refuses to pay without any genuine reason, workers have the right to embark on protest as well as a strike, he said.
Describing Uzodinma as a kind-hearted man, Ihezuo who would not intentionally withhold workers without reasons, he appeals with the Government to look into what is the reason behind the delay and sort it out accordingly.
He further used the medium to commend Imo Government for relieving the State of the burden of bad roads by not only completing the reconstruction of the major roads in the city but by commissioning them.
