Governor paid labour leaders N10m to end strike – Group alleges

The group said the decision by their leaders to end the strike is a coup against the suffering workers of the state.

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state

Daily Post reports that the Coordinator of the group, Mike Bamidele, said “One wonders what gave Labour the impression that the Federal Government would again be willing to release another bailout to Fayose when the first one had not been accounted for.

“This is a mark of failure on the part of the Organized Labour and we in the EWF are not surprised about the development as we had anticipated this failure right from the onset.

“Against this background, therefore, it will be wrong and illegal for any Labour to attempt to coerce the workers back to work through the back doors without achieving anything. Negotiating one month salary on their behalf after about five weeks strike is not only anti-worker but also criminal.”

Ekiti state workers called of their strike and entered into an agreement with the state government on June 24, 2016.
