Oyo Workers Suspend Strike To ‘Honour Makinde’


The Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC,has suspended its industrial action.
OYO INSIGHT recalled that the union recently embarked upon the strike as a result of the failure of  outgoing governor Abiola Ajimobi to pay salary and arrears of workers in the state.
NLC chairman, Com. Bayo Titilola-Sodo made this known on Monday in an address made available to journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Sodo explained that the incoming governor of Oyo State, Eng Seyi Makinde is a well bred, well nurtured person, noting that the labour believe that he would address all issues pertaining to the welfare of workers in the state.
“In defence of this man of honor and to assure Eng Seyi Makinde of the good intentions of Oyo State workers, the strike action is hereby suspended, and workers are hereby directed to resume immediately.”
He emphasised that some of the demand of the workers have been on the table of the outgoing government for the last one to two years, adding that workers in Oyo State had been tolerant thinking that the outgoing government would have a change of heart and grant their demands.
“The strike came in the belief that with political will, the remaining number of days would still birth a good life for the workers, our strike action was not intended to intimidate or embarrass the incoming government as some people may want to insinuate.”
