Ogun workers vow not to back down on indefinite strike declared


The workers alleged that the governor had refused to pay salary deductions for 21 months.

Waterfield Luxury Hotel Akobo, Ibadan

Organised Labour in Ogun State has declared an indefinite strike over what they termed the “pathetic plight” of workers across the state.

The strike which takes effect from midnight Tuesday would affect ministries, agencies, hospitals and public schools and other government agencies and parastatals.

Workers in the state last week gave Governor Dapo Abiodun a seven-day ultimatum to address their demands or face workers’ wrath in the state.

They claimed that the governor had refused to pay salary deductions for 21 months.

They added that the workers have not also gotten Statutory Leave Allowances in the last eight years.

This, the labour union said, was a breach of the State Pension Reform Law, 2006 (amended 2013) in the implementation of the Contributory Pension Scheme.

Their grievances were contained in a letter dated June 21 and addressed to Governor Abiodun.

The letter was jointly signed by the State Chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Emmanuel Bankole; Chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Akeem Lasisi; and the Chairman of the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), Isa Olude.

Following the expiration of the ultimatum, the labour leaders on Monday afternoon addressed workers at the Arcade ground at the state secretariat, Oke – Mosan, Abeokuta, where they declared an indefinite strike.

Mr Bankole said the government had failed to yield to the labour’s several calls for negotiation.

He said the indefinite strike would allow the government have a rethink and call for a dialogue.

“Anyone who reports for duty tomorrow (Tuesday) is a traitor and it has never been well with a traitor,” Mr Bankole added.

You Are Bittered Because Atiku Stopped Your Third Term Agenda, PDP Knocks Obasanjo

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has tackled former President Olusegun Obasanjo over comments that he made, saying “I made a mistake when I was to be president in picking my number 2.”

Obasanjo had over the weekend said he made a mistake in the choice of his number two ahead of the 1999 presidential election.

He was elected as President in 1999 along with the current PDP presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, as his vice-president.

The former President, who did not mention Atiku in his statement, said it was a mistake he made in good faith, but was saved by God.

But the PDP is not taking Obasanjo’s comment lightly, and has threatened to expose the character of the former President should he fail to clarify his statement within 48 hours.

Adressing a news conference in Kaduna on Monday, Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustee, Senator Walid Jibril said although the party has great respect for the former President, it would be disappointing if the statement credited to him, turned out to be true.

He further accused Obasanjo of being angry with Atiku Abubakar for truncating his third term agenda despite the latter’s contribution to the Obasanjo administration.

“I wish to appeal to former President Obasanjo to come out openly to repeat what he has said,” Jibril said. “Whether or not he was misquoted or meant what was credited to him.

“Although he has not debunked what was reported, one can assume that what was quoted to have been said by him is correct, but if he fails to openly come out and say which is correct in 48 hours, you will hear the bombardment and I will have no option but to break the egg and tell the whole world and Nigerians who is Obasanjo.

“There is no doubt Obasanjo may still be angry with Atiku even after helping him to succeed but perhaps for truncating his third term agenda. In any case, Alhaji Abubakar Atuku is our presidential candidate and I can tell you for sure that he will be the President in 2023 insha Allah.”

On the the outcome of the Presidential primaries and subsequent picking of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate of Atiku which may have angered Governor Nyesom Wike, the BoT Chairman disclosed that a high powered reconciliatory committee is soon to be constituted to meet Governor Wike and appeal to him.

”Governor Wike is a great party man who fought for the party, when the committee is constituted, in which we will also bring other contestants together, we will go and meet with Governor Wike and appeal to him even if it means kneeling down to beg him,” he said.

Oyetola, Makinde To Reconstruct Iwo Road Interchange, Iwo-Osogbo Road

Oyo State Governor, ‘Seyi Makinde and his Osun State counterpart, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, have concluded plans to jointly rehabilitate and reconstruct the Iwo Road interchange- to Ogunremako Junction-Lalupon, down to Iwo-Osogbo road.

The road is a major link between the neighbouring South-West states.

The Commissioners for Public Works, Infrastructure and Transport in Oyo State, Professor Daud Kehinde Sangodoyin and his Osun State counterpart, Engr. Oluremi Omowaiye, who jointly announced the historic collaboration on Monday, at a press conference held at the Oyo State Ministry of Works and Transport, Secretariat, Ibadan, said the development would enhance the quality of lives of the people.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted Sangodoyin as explaining that Oyo State will handle 29.2 kilometres of the over 80 kilometres road project.

He stated that a section of the road belongs to the Federal Government, while other parts belong to the states, adding that the Federal Government has been notified of the impending construction.

He also noted that Oyo State will take care of the section from the Iwo Road Interchange, Ibadan, to the boundary with Osun State, while Osun State will handle rest to Osogbo.

He said: “On the authority of Governor ‘Seyi Makinde and Governor Gboyega Oyetola, we are here to address the press on the joint collaboration of the proposed rehabilitation; reconstruction and overlaying of Iwo Road interchange road to Ogunremako junction, down to Lalupon, which is the boundary between Osun and Oyo States.

“On the other end of Osun State, we have the Iwo boundary down to Osogbo, which is about 69km. From the side of Oyo State, it is about 29.2km.

“The two state governors, their directors and commissioners in charge of works and transport have met and did a joint inspection of the road for the benefit of our people, and for us to be able to award the contract.”

According to Sangodoyin, the project sits right within the agenda of the Governor Makinde-led administration to take Oyo State people from poverty to prosperity and to build infrastructure that targets the economy of the state.

“One of the major benefits of the project is regional integration, using that axis. For the two states, agriculture is the only comparative advantage. So, in expanding the economy of the two states, we have to focus on agriculture and food security, and that is why we want to tap into the resources on that axis and contribute to what we call the Domestic Resource Flow, while expanding the economy.

“Also, we looked at security around that axis. By the time we reduce the infrastructure deficit around that axis, we would have improved on the security infrastructure, because, as I speak now, the road from Iwo down to Olodo is nothing to write home about.

“If we are able to cooperate with Osun State, we will be able to improve the security infrastructure.

“We are also focusing on ease-of-doing-business. There will be ease of movement of goods from Osogbo down to Ibadan. By the time we complete the project at Iwo Road, the 29.2km road and 5.5km road to Airport, Adegbayi road, we believe that it will contribute to business development around that axis.

“So, today, we felt we should come around and tell the whole world that we are brothers and are ready to partner to improve the means of livelihood of our own people.

“We have commenced the processes of awarding the Iwo Road interchange to Lalupon, the boundary between the two states and have sectionalised it into three parts.

“The first part is from Iwo Road interchange to Olodo bridge, which is 7.7km and the stretch of the bridge, which we are going to dualise, is 500 metres; from Ogunremako junction to Lalupon, which is 20.3km. In all, we are working on a 29.2km stretch and within the next few weeks, we should be able to award the contract. The two governors will come together to flag it off in due time,” Sangodoyin added.

In his remarks, the Osun State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Omowaiye, said that the Osun State government will handle 54.4km of the road that borders Oyo and Osun States.

He said: “Just like he (his Oyo State counterpart) said, we are brothers. For the two governors, what is important is the development of our race. Bad infrastructure does not know APC or PDP. If you look at that road, you can see an alignment of 5km stretch and that is the easiest route to Ibadan. About a year ago, we started discussion on the need to collaborate and the two governors graciously agreed.

“We all know that the two states are agrarian states and this development will allow for easy movement of agric produce on that corridor.

“Oyo State will be doing 29.2km while we will be doing 54.4km. We are taking it from Deleyesa in Osogbo to the boundary of Oyo State. “We are sending a message to the people that irrespective of party affiliation, we are brothers and the development of our states is of utmost importance.

“I can tell you we have not brought politics into this. What we want is good infrastructure. This is a good thing for the two states, which will promote commerce and agriculture as well as make movement between residents of the two states easy.”

The duo hinted that the project, upon completion, will enhance socio-economic activities, boost security and ease movement of people and goods between the two states.

They added that Oyo and Osun governments would meet again to deliberate on modalities of executing the project, amount to spend, duration and the contractor that would handle the project.

Waterfield Luxury Hotel Akobo, Ibadan

Mr Seun Abosede, the State Youth Leader of the Hon. Rasaq Salinsile led faction of the APC in Osun State has described as untrue, the report that the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and his successor, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, have settled their differences.

Abosede, in a statement today, stated that the picture being circulated on the social media where Aregbesola and Oyetola were hugging each other is an old picture, saying the minister never met with Oyetola in recent times as regard settlement of the crisis in All Progressives Congress in the State of Osun.

According to him, the people circulating the picture are same set of people who had crucified, badmouthed and lied against Aregbesola to achieve their selfish goal, saying they should bury their heads in shame for smearing the former governor’s image.

“While we are not opposed to genuine reconciliation of both Governor Oyetola and Aregbesola’s camps, the picture being circulated by the “data boys” is not only misleading but mischievous”.

“The people behind the circulation of the picture should be humble and sincere enough to initiate a reconciliation move of they so desire. We considered the widespread circulation of the picture as tricky and an attempt to blackmail the minister.

“The general public should please disregard the fake news”, said Abosede.
