strike: Jang strengthens security in LGs


Government activities in Plateau State were grounded yesterday as the ongoing strike continues with offices and Banks remained even as normalcy has returned to Langtang South local government area following a meeting by Governor Jonah David Jang with the Plateau state heads of security to beef up security in all the seventeen local government areas of the state.
The state commissioner of Information, Abraham Yiljap explained that it was possible to reach an agreement between the state government and Organised Labour on the local government and primary school teacher’s salaries in the state.
“We went as far as nearly having everything settled on Tuesday until when labour decided to shift the goal post and once again gave us 24 hours during which they will bring another answer. When they returned, they shifted the goal post again.”
“This is what we have said in our previous statements because that is very typical of the kind of leadership we have in labour, but it is possible to reach an agreement,” he said.
According to him,  the state government and local governments are not at war with the people of the state and assured workers that the situation will be overcome.
“Labour’s claim to have not been served with an injunction is a mere claim because they cannot be the only blind ones we have in the society. The state governor met with the security agencies yesterday and after reviewing the situation generally in the 17 local governments, he decided to re-enforce security to allow people to live their lives in safety and in peace and to deter those who are out to cause arson and to bring to book those who are bent of destruction,” he said.
While sympathizing with the victims of Tuesday’s arson, he urged people in the state to go about their lawful businesses peacefully stressing that “we do not think that using violence is a civilized way of handling things in a democracy.
