Thousands of council workers in Delta State under the aegis of Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees  on Wednesday protested the over 12 months salary arrears owed council staff, lamenting that scores of members had died as a result of the problem.

The workers at a city-wide rally held in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of the state, accused Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of making them suffer.

Speaking at the rally, the state NULGE chairman, Zico Okwudi, also accused the governor of betrayal and reneging on a gentleman’s agreement reached with the workers three months ago.
