Staff of the Tinapa Business Resort have protested the state government’s alleged plans to use the resort as Isolation Centre for Coronavirus (COVID-19) treatment in Cross River State.

The outnumbered staff came out on Friday, April 24, 2020, to protest their grievances while pleading with the state government to save their jobs, especially in this pandemic era.

The staff on their face masks were carrying placards with inscriptions like: “We say no to Tinapa Isolation centre”, “We cry for help”, “Tinapa must not end this season”, His Excellency, save our jobs”.
