STILL grappling with the shock of their sudden sack, workers of the Kano Refuse Management and Sanitation Board (REMASAB) have accused management of the board of denying them three-month arrears of their allowances.

The former casual workers, among them elderly men and women, around the premises of REMASAB stated that government had since terminated their services but denied them their entitlement.

According to the workers, majority of them had been working as casual workers in the last 10 years with a monthly allowance of N10,000, claiming the board is owing them June and July allowance.

Kano State government recently announced dismissal of 2,620 workers of the board, majority of them cleaners engaged as casuals.

According to the state Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Muhammad Garba, who briefed journalists immediately after the weekly executive council meeting, the 2,620 casual workers were dismissed due to irregularity in their payment.
