Ekiti state Governor- Ayo Fayose

Reports say the medical practitioners announced their intention to commence their strike on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, following the expiration of a 21 day ultimatum which they issued to the Ekiti state government.

Civil servants in the state are also at loggerheads with Governor Fayose over the non-payment of their salaries.

Premium Times reports that Fayose spoke to the union’s leader and asked them not to go on strike till he comes back from Abuja.

Speaking to newsmen, the acting President of ARD, EKSUTH, Tunji Olaoye said the strike will go ahead despite the Governor’s plea.

Olaoye also said “We hope that the issues will be resolved by Monday, if not the emergency services will be removed and there will be a total strike.”

A lawyer, Kabir Akingbolu sued Governor Ayo Fayose at the Federal High Court in Lagos state, for joining the ongoing workers’ strike in the state.
