ABSUTH responds to reports that Orji Kalu has paid back wage arrears to workers
The report is untrue, which says Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has written off the back pay of workers at the Abia State Clinical Hospital (ABSUTH).
This was a clarification made by the Board and Management of Abia State University Hospital of Education (ABSUTH).
The information came just a week after the government began paying the debt, as the governor had previously promised.
ASSUTH’s chairman of the board, Dr. Voko Davidson, said in a statement that the institution seriously discourages such extravagant calls that don’t make sense.
According to him, ABSUTH is not aware of such a visit to any senator.
He also stated that ABSUTH does not have and will never authorize such a statement.
The Abia State Government, led by Ph.D. Dr. Okezi Victor Ikpeazu, has shown a genuine interest and intends to write off the wage arrears, as the first tranche of the payment was recently received.
“The board and management of ABSUTH are grateful to the state government and believe in its genuine interest in rebuilding the hospital,” he added.
