Ohakim lauds Okorocha for paying judges’ six months’ salary arrears

Former governor of Imo state, Chief Ikedi Ohakim has commended Governor Rochas Okorocha for heeding his wise counsel by paying judges in their state six of the 16 months’ unpaid salary arrears.
According to a statement signed by Ohakim’s spokesman, Mr. Collins Ughalaa, “Governor Okorocha on Monday, February 12, 2018, hurriedly paid the Judges 6 months of their 16 months’ salary arrears.”
Ughalaa conveyed Dr Ikedi Ohakim’s gratitude to more than 12,000 persons who he said had already signed up for planned mass protest in Owerri against Okorocha’s refusal to pay the judges their 16 months’ salary.
The statement reads: “We thank God immensely that His Excellency, Dr. Ikedi Ohakim’s brain is intact, contrary to Governor Okorocha’s insult, and he did not need to be taken to the psychiatric hospital before the Judges were paid 6 months’ salary arrears. Nevertheless, Dr. Ikedi Ohakim is neither worried about the insults from Governor Okorocha nor those from his appointees and hirelings.
“Now that Governor Okorocha has started paying the Judges, he should also pay those who have served the state meritoriously their pension and gratuity without further delay.”
“Workers deserve their wages. The first line charge of every government is the welfare of the people, and the civil servants and pensioners deserve their pay and must be paid as at when due.”
