Lawyers and teachers who are affected by the Cross River State alleged delisting of names from civil service payroll yesterday protested in Calabar.

The aggrieved civil savants, numbering over 500, blocked the entrance to the Governor’s Office with placards such as, “We are not ghost workers, pay us our salaries,” “We need our two months salaries,” “Look for ghost workers elsewhere, not among us” and “It is our statutory right.”

The protesters had first gone to the accountant-general’s office and locked the gate before proceeding to the governor’s office, which is a stone throw.
