BREAKING: Ekiti State Shut Down Until Further Notice, As Governor Ayodele Fayose Goes Into Hiding, Nowhere To Be Found

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees in Ekiti State, has on Thursday, declared an indefinite strike against Governor Ayodele Fayose, for alleged negligence of workers welfare, and unpaid salary arrears.

The workers are aggrieved that despite their goodwill to the administration, the State Government has failed to honour an agreement signed recently, at the Joint Account Allocation Committee, of September 4.

The umbrella body of the Local Government Workers in Ekiti State, also warned the State Government against fresh recruitment, when it was yet to clear various arrears owed to workers.

Rising from an emergency meeting, the Union directed all workers to embark on a strike, from Friday, until all contentious issues, including social security, payment to Federal Inland Revenue Service, and the amount for Net distributable, were addressed.

It warned that it would not hesitate to deal with any member who disobeys the directive.

In a communiqué signed by the State’s President, Olubunmi Ajimoko, and the Secretary, Suleiman Alero, NULGE expressed concerns that while scores of people were daily retiring from both the Local Government and Teaching services, salaries had remained static, with pensions increasing drastically monthly.

The communiqué read: “Against the background of this government neglecting our earlier advice on the timeliness of fresh recruitment into the services of both the Local Government and the Teaching sector, we again wish to stress that additional burden should not be put on JAAC, until our various arrears are cleared. The case of those termed “Hurriedly employed” in 2003, should serve as a lesson to all who remember history.

“In view of the insensitivity of this present administration, even at the point of winding down, when we feel that corrections of past errors should be made, it has become painfully obvious that no concrete agreement can be respected by this administration.

“The Union is therefore, calling on all its members in the 16 Local Governments, the related Commission, Boards and Departments, to proceed on an indefinite strike, from Friday.

“We humbly wish to stress that this position will only be reviewed, when we see a physical evidence of the political will to alleviate our members’ predicament.”

All efforts made by Post-Nigeria to get the response of Governor Ayodele Fayose, through his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, were to no avail.

Post-Nigeria however, was reliably informed by a source, that Fayose is not in town, but the source refused to disclose the whereabouts of the Governor.
