About 2,484 in Benue State who were sacked by Governor Hyacinth Alia have written to the State government, demanding their reinstatement within 30 days.
They urged the State government to reinstate them in order to avert legal action.
The sacked workers in a notice to the Secretary to the Benue State Government through their counsel, S. E Irabor, stated that they were lawfully employed by the State government between December, 2022 and March, 2023.
They maintained that they were issued employment letters and they carried out their schedule of duties without hindrance or queries.
The affected workers also demanded for the payment of their salaries and allowances, stressing that their employment followed due process.
They expressed the hope that the Benue State Government would grant their demand for reinstatement and not let the matter drag to the courts.
Recall that shortly after Governor Alia took over, he sacked all civil servants who were employed between May 2022 and March 2023.
