You’re wicked, insensitive – PDP fires Dapo Abiodun’s govt over workers strike

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun chapter has described the government of Governor Dapo Abiodun as “wicked” and “insensitive” for reportedly “refusing to consent to the legitimate requests of workers in the state, despite numerous demands,” from the Organized Labour leaders.

According to reports; the workers in Ogun State embarked on a seven-day warning strike over Gov. Abiodun’s refusal to pay their N30,000 minimum wage and other entitlements.

The Ogun PDP said it is happy with the nonviolent conduct chosen by the leadership of the Organized Labour in pressing home its demands.

Akinloye Bankole, the Publicity Secretary of the party in Ogun State stated that, “The declaration of a week warning strike, following the insensitivity of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the state is a proof that the leadership of the Organized Labour and workers are true compatriots.”

Bankole, in a statement he made available on Wednesday, expressed optimism that, “the government will come to its senses within the period of the warning strike.”
“The warning strike, we are hoping will not result to a full scale indefinite strike action as contained in a newsletter signed by the Organised Labour if the government can wake up from its slumber and see the welfare of its workers as germane and crucial in the interest of the development of our dear State,” he said.

He recalled that the PDP issued a release a few weeks ago, calling on the ruling government to show empathy and compassion to the mass of government workers by implementing the minimum wage, remitting their contributory deductions and paying all their outstanding allowances and other entitlements.
