Bayelsa NLC dares Governor, continues strike

The Bayelsa state chairman, John Ndiomu insists that the government must pay the salaries owed workers before they can return to work.

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state.

The Governor had earlier threatened the workers saying “We have drawn the line and we give them till Monday. Any one that doesn’t show up should consider himself sacked. We shall send out a monitoring team. I will also go round myself.”

The workers in the state are protesting the non-payment of salaries since January 2016.

The Bayelsa state chairman, John Ndiomu, has however refused to call off the strike, saying that the government must pay the salaries owed workers before they can return to work.

Ndomu said “The strike is on it third day, and we’re still on it; it is true that the state government has started the payment for January alone but we will continue to stay at home until the union reaches a decision.

“Our members should also remain calm. Series of meetings have been going on with the government and we shall also be meeting today (Monday), but I am still urging our members to remain at home.”

Governor Seriake Dickson complained some time ago, that Bayelsa was finding it difficult to pay workers’ salaries due to its dwindling resources.
