Politics Okorocha: Payment Of Salary Is A Privilege, Not A Right (Nigerians React)



Nigerians have reacted to the statement "payment of salaries is not a right, but rather, it is a privilege” made by Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha.

He made the statement through his spokesman, Dr Kelechi Okpaleke, following the immediate payment of salaries to civil servant by the presidency.


The Governor who has been accused of owing Imo workers of over 4 months salaries has come under attack after the the statement was made available.

Le 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.
Jer 22:13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;
Eze 29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
Eze 29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army. {take her spoil...: Heb. spoil her spoil, and prey her prey}
With the above biblical quotations, it is quite clear that salaries are right & not pivilege as opined by gov. Rochas, therefore, any government federal, state, local, company or individual owing his workers for any reason(s) is inviting the wrath of God!.
