BLAME GOVERNMENT JAMBOREE FOR WORKERS’ STRIKE-MAKINDE
Oyo state governor- elect, Engr Seyi Makinde had harsh words for the Ajimobi led Administration for it’s insensitivity to workers’ welfare.
In a statement by his Campaign Spokesman, Prince Dotun Oyelade, the total disregard for fiscal prudence and decency in the last few weeks, leading to the award of billions of naira of fresh contracts, mobilisation of huge sums of money for projects that have no direct benefit to the masses and open display of monetary generosities to friends of government to the chagrin of workers who feel neglected and isolated in the face of simulated solvency are the reasons for the strike embarked upon by oyo state NLC.
The governor-elect said that Ajimobi must solve the problem he has created before he leaves office by using the same enthusiasm with which he was awarding contracts and paying contractors and recruiting and promoting people to accede to the workers’ demands.
Makinde appealed to workers to see beyond the facade created by the outgoing administration and situate their anger to the right quarters
