The staff of the National Civil Engineering Equipment Park (Matgenie) threaten to strike in the days to come if nothing concrete is done. For good reason, they claim 13 months of unpaid wages, evaluated at 906.554 million FCFA by the director general (DG) of Matgenie, Désiré Abogo Ntang.

In a communication on September 10, he invited the staff to promote the path of wisdom: “We do not put pressure on a minister, we ask for his benevolent understanding. So no action of defiance by the Minister of Public Works (Mintp), “he advises.
