Ondo workers protest nonpayment of salaries

23 September 2015, 13:46

Akure - Workers in Ondo State on Tuesday took to the streets of Akure to protest the non-payment of salaries for July and August, Nation reports.

They also demanded the payment of their monthly deductions from their salaries since May this year.

The workers besieged the premises of the Office of the Account General as early as 7.30am to make their demands.

The workers brandished placards, chanted solidarity songs and blocked the road in front of the Government House for hours before proceeding to the governor’s office.

He said the union had disagreed with the government’s attempt to divide the workers by paying core civil servants and leaving others, saying that all workers must be paid their outstanding salaries.
