Workers in Ondo state have ended their strike action after reaching an agreement with the government.

Premium Times reports that the chairman of the Joint Negotiating Council, Sunday Adeleye, said they got a firm commitment from representatives of the government.

He also added that there was no other choice but to ask the workers to resume work.

Adeleye said “We have only suspended the strike and not called it off.”

During the four weeks strike, angry workers clashed with the Ondo state Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, and prevented him from entering the Government House.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) also slammed Mimiko for travelling to the United Kingdom despite his inability to pay salaries.

Workers in Ekiti state also ended their strike after reaching an agreement with the state government.

The APC accused the Ondo state Governor of planning to hold a mass rally against President Buhari.
