The President of the Police Welfare Association (PWA), Travis Cicot, has urged members of the organisation to disregard fake news that was posted on social media regarding salary talks with the government.
“It was conveyed that there was a meeting held via zoom with the minister and it was confirmed that the 50% cash and 50% in bonds is expected to be paid for 3 months, starting in May at interest rate of 3%, ” the ‘fake’ item announced.
“The bonds mature in April 2021. Asked whether it will be taxed they were unable to confirm. Please inform your men of the imminent implementation in other to prepare themselves mentally,” the message that was exposed as fake by the PWA President read.
Chicot made it clear that the note does not originate from and is not the position of the PWA.
“We, therefore, request that members disregard this message,” Chicot noted Thursday.
He reminded members of the PWA that no decisions have been taken by the association.
Chicot urged members to treat the document and any other not emanating from the PWA as a hoax and to delete it with immediate effect.
