Oyo Workers Shut Down Secretariat, Demand Audience With Gov Makinde

1 Min Read

Oyo State workers on Monday have shutdown the state government secretariat, Agodi over some of their demands which are yet to be met by Governor Seyi Makinde.

The demands included remittance of deductions, release of promotion letter with financial implications, review of pensions, among others.

The workers whose actions created traffic jams along the Secretariat road were chanting solidarity songs to attract the attention of passers-by.

Speaking with newsmen, State NLC Chairman, Mr Kayode Martin said the only solution to the protest was the physical meeting with Governor Seyi Makinde and not by proxy.

He accused the Governor of insensitivity to workersโ€™ plights by failing to meet them.

Mr Martin further explained that all their correspondences to the Governor were not honoured, saying that it was unhealthy for industrial relations.

Corroborating his counterpart, TUC Chairman, Mr. Bosun Olabiyi pointed out that Governor Makinde had failed the workers in the state by not being responsible and responsive.

He said all avenues employed to meet the Governor proved abortive, hence the need to embark on the protest to press home their demands.
