A looming face-off with workers over cooking stove

Published

The existing peaceful relationship between the Cross River State government and civil servants may be torpedoed if government insists on implementing a recent order to deduct some money from civil and public servants over bio-fuel cooker and solar lamps.

New Telegraph correspondent gathered from a reliable source that if government goes ahead with the plan, which the office of the Chief of Staff and Ministry of Climate Change are bent on implementing, workers would ground the state.

Sources confided in New Telegraph that a company, associated with a top government official, Alvila Technologies Ltd, had written to the Ministry of Climate Change, proposing that all civil and public servants should mandatorily be made to buy the bio-fuel cooker and solar lamps.

It was also gathered that the Commissioner in the Ministry of Climate Change, Dr. Alice Ekwu, had written to the governor on May 19, 2017 about a proposal by Alvila Technologies Ltd, and pleaded with the governor to approve the proposal.
