Rivers Owes RIVCAS Lecturers N128m

The newly recruited lecturers from the Rivers owned College of Arts and Science, Rumuola may boycott classes starting from next week for what they call “government insensitivity to their plights”.
The newly recruited lecturers who are numbering 128 have not been paid for ten (10) months.
The effected lecturers numbering over twenty (20) who stormed our office on Monday, alleged that the state government owes them over N128m as unpaid salary in the past ten (10) months.
The lecturers are pleading with the relevant authorities to do something about their unpaid salary and arrears. They have threatened to embark on industrial action if the government fails to clear their backlog of salary.
If the lecturers proceed on strike as planned it might have negative effect on the forthcoming convocative ceremony of the institution.
Information reaching our educational desk has it that the College’s Provost, Dr. Hillary Wordu is jittery over the planned strike of the unpaid lecturers.
A knowledgeable source told our Education Correspondent that, Dr. Wordu is begging the lecturers to rescind on their on proposed strike, saying that such action might affect the academic calendar of the school.
All efforts to contact the Commissioner in-charge of the Rivers State Ministry of Education, Dame Alice Nemi Lawrence proved abortive for she was said to have traveled out of the state for an important official assignment. ###
