Punch reports that the Governor was forced to come out of his car and address the aggrieved workers.

According to reports, Mimiko begged the striking workers to resume work, adding that the state does not have enough money to pay their salary arrears.

The defiant workers however dismissed the Governor’s plea, chanting No Salary, No Work, reports say.

The chairman of Joint Negotiating Council, Sunday Adeleye also told newsmen that the strike will continue indefinitely, till the government agrees to pay their salaries.

Civil servants in Bayelsa state have also given the government a seven day ultimatum to pay their salaries or they will resume their suspended strike action.

Governor Ayo Fayose, in a show of solidarity for the plight of the civil servants in the state, joined their strike action.
