Fayemi Calls Striking Ekiti LG Workers Back To Work
Activities in all the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State have picked up.
This follows the suspension of the over one month strike declared by the Ekiti State chapter of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE).
The decision to end the strike followed the intervention of Governor Kayode Fayemi.
The decision to suspend the strike was taken at an emergency NULGE State Executive Council (SEC) meeting held in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, on Sunday.
According to the union, ending the strike had become necessary as a result of the part payment of their accumulated leave bonuses, owed by the Fayose administration.
A communique suspending the strike was signed by the state NULGE President, Bunmi Ajimoko and Secretary, Aleru Suleiman.
The communique disclosed that some of the workers had started to receive bank alerts.
The union commended Governor Kayode Fayemi for his intervention in ensuring the payment of the leave bonuses.
Our correspondent who monitored activities in some of the local governments reports that over 80 per cent of staff were seen in their offices going about their normal duties on Monday.
Babatunde Adewale, a civil servant who spoke to Bounce News said that he was glad the strike was called off and that he hoped government had gotten the message.
“We have resumed and hoping that the strike made a positive impact", he added.
