No salary for striking Oyo workers – Ajimobi


By; Bayo Akamo, Ibadan.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi Wednesday said there is no pay for any of its civil servants participating in the on going strike declared in Oyo State by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The governor stated this while speaking with journalists during his tour of some offices at the State Secretariat Agodi, Ibadan  to monitor the effectiveness of his last Sunday’s appeal to the NLC leaders to call off the ongoing strike to give room for dialogue, failure of which he said the state might be forced to apply the no work no pay rule after this Tuesday.
He maintained that Oyo State Government would not reverse it’s rule of ‘no work no pay’ for workers who are participating in ongoing strike, stressing that those not on their duty posts would not be paid their salaries during the strike period.
Expressing satisfaction with the turnout of workers at the state Secretariat, the governor described the ongoing NLC strike as ineffective considering the number of civil servants who reported to their duty posts.
Governor Ajimobi emphasized that rather than adopting methods of alleged “intimidation and illegality,” labour unions in the state should embrace dialogue and consultation in a bid to move the State forward.
Commenting on the N84billion allocation received from the Federal Government, the governor declared that only N42billion is for state government while the remaining amount was meant for local Government councils.
