” We have demonstrated high sense of patriotism by tolerating management of China Harbor Engineering Company of Nigeria Limited who are the contractor handling the construction of the Abuja ,Keffi express way.

 

” Last month we had to protest and blocked the entrance of the gate because we noticed there was no willingness on their part to pay for our labour .The agreement between us and them is that on every 15th of the month our salary would be paid ,but they have failed in meeting up this agreement and extended it to 25th of every month ,yet we are not disturbed but we have also noticed that our salary apart from being paid as at when due ,they now cut our wages.

” Honestly our officials of Nigeria need to talk to this foreigners because it is becoming intolerant and if allowed in the near future they will not even pay our citizens” They lamented.
