The Gombe State Government  has said that it strongly believes that the decision to engage the services of a new environmental company was done in the best interest of the state and its people particularly the workers. 

This was contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner of Information and Culture Gombe State, Julius Ishaya Lapes, dated Thursday April 7, 2022.
According to the statement,  titled, “Protest By Supposed Aggrieved INEX Workers: Putting The Facts Straight”,  the Commissioner said that government has it on a good account that some supervisors with INEX cleaners are bent on causing confusion and mischief in the process. 

The statement explained that in the early hours of Thursday, being the 7th of April 2022, a protest was staged by supposedly aggrieved workers of INEX cleaners in front of the main entrance of the Government House. 
“It is believed that the protest followed the expiration of contract between the Gombe State Government and the INEX cleaners after the present administration in the State graciously extended the contract agreement by 9 months. 
“It is however important to state that INEX cleaners is private environmental service provider engaged by the State Government for clearing and evacuation of waste within the State capital. 
“However in compliance with the public procurement law of Gombe State, the Job for the evacuation of waste in the State capital was advertised to the public for bidding. The outcome of the bidding process eventually showed that INEX cleaners bidded a much higher contract sum than than the company the State Government has so far contracted. 
“In sealing the contract with the new environmental company, the Gombe State Government gave a condition that all workers with INEX cleaners should be retained with a much higher pay,” it said.

To this end, the government   used this medium to warn trouble makers particularly the supervisors  to stay clear from acts that will bring about the breakdown of law and order as the long arm of the law will catch up with anyone who in the habit of doing so.
