FC Taraba Players Sleep In Front Of Govt House Over 11months Salary

Two days ago, FC Taraba players were disappointed by the Taraba State Government who had promised to pay the salaries owed. The goalkeeper Ikechukwu Obilo told said the club chairman, Daniel Ishaya Gani, had assured the players that the Government had agreed to pay them 4 months salary out of the 11 months owed, but the players were disappointed again on Monday.

To protest the unfair treatment, the players gathered their mattresses and camped out in front of the Government House in Jalingo, all through the night, with hopes that the Governor will heed to their plea.

Explaining the current protest, Obilo said..

“Nothing has happened and the players are very angry. We have made plans to return to there (Government house) on Monday.”

”I heard the Chairman say the deputy Governor asked them to prepare a memo for 4 months payment but the Chief of Staff protested insisting only 2 months will be paid. At that point the Chairman stormed out of the office.”
