Oyo governor dares state workers

05 April 2016, 20:25

Oyo - Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has called the bluff of 62 000 workers in the state on Monday.

The governor said the civil servants cannot hold him to ransom with threat of strike, adding that the principle of pro-rata payment of salaries would be applied for every worker who participates in a planned industrial action without adherence to due process.

He said this at a stakeholders’ meeting on agricultural development at the House of Chiefs, Secretariat, Ibadan.

The meeting had in attendance prominent traditional rulers in the state, labour leaders and caretaker committee chairmen of the 33 Local Government Areas of the state.

The rulers were invited to the meeting so that they could prevail on the workers to shelve the planned strike.

The workers had given a 7-day ultimatum to the governor to do something urgent about the five months salaries being owed them or they down tools.
