Unpaid Salary: Ekiti workers enforce strike , storm Secretariat with cudgels, – MainNews.Blog

Dissatisfied with the non-payment of over five months salaries Ekiti state workers yesterday stormed the State Secretariat in Ado-Ekiti and chased away their colleagues who resumed from the Sallah holiday.

The workers led by the former Chairmen of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Ayodeji Aluko and his counterpart in Trade Union Congress, TUC, Comrade Kolawole Olaiya, accused the government of deceit over its commitment to defray between six and ten months outstanding salaries being owed it workers.

The former labour leaders under the name “Ekiti Workers Rescue Team”, who began the protest at about 8.25am addressed the workers in front of the secretariat, where they ordered their members to leave their offices and begin an indefinite strike.

They said it was wrong for Governor Ayodele Fayose, who accused former Governor Kayode Fayemi of insensitivity for owing one month salary in 2014 to have betrayed the trust and confidence the workers reposed in him that earned him victory in 2014.

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, in a statement by its State President, Bunmi Ajimoko had earlier told his staff of their third tier across Ekiti to begin a strike yesterday, but was later called off due to undisclosed circumstances.

The workers also dissolved the state executives of the NLC and TUC, headed by Comrades Ade Adesanmi and Odunayo Adesoye respectively, alleging that they have become passive and shying away from carrying out their responsibilities as labour leaders.

The leaders had hardly ended their speeches when the workers stormed the offices and started chasing away their members with cudgels. They observed a minute silence in honour of their members who had died due to financial incapacitation engendered by epileptic salary payment.

In his address to the workers, Aluko said: “Today, we are dissolving the executives of NLC and TUC in Ekiti and they stand dissolved, because their leaders, Ade Adesanmi and Odunayo Adesoye have lost their values. They are no longer talking about the welfare of the workers they were expected to defend.

“We decided not to do this protest before election, so that they won’t read political meanings to it. Workers have died, just because they are not paid. In 2014, Governor Fayose said any governor who owed justa month salary because he is building infrastructure doesn’t worth being a governor.

“Today, the governor owes pensioners ten months, LG workers eight months and civil servants and teachers are owed six months. We are not fighting Governor Fayose but he must pay the workers.

“Shortly after the election, Fayose quickly paid six month salaries and furniture allowances of political office holders, then what becomes of our teeming workers?

“It was sad that Adesanmi and Adesoye decided to give Fayemi three months moratorium to pay workers when assumed office, when they were practically doing nothing to ensure that Governor Fayose doesn’t leave office a debtor governor as he promised.

“We hereby declare indefinite strike commencing from today and only the national secretariats of both TUC and NLC can negotiate on our behalf, because we no longer trust the State leaderships of the two congresses”, he said.

In another leaflet circulated by the workers under the aegis of Ekiti workers Rescue Team, they accused the labour leaders of getting a sum of N14 million as mobilization from Governor Fayose to enlist their backing for the July 14 governorship election.

Amnesty coordinator denies non-payment of school fees MainNews.blog Jun 17, 2018 2:15 AM

MainNews.Blog

Prof. Charles Quaker DokuThe Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof. Charles Dokubo, has refuted allegations that school fees have not been paid to some beneficiaries.

Fielding questions at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja, Dokubo explained that persons alleging they had not been paid either came into the programme through the “back door” or had personally decided to extend their degree programmes.

He said: “There is no other stipend that has not been paid. Anything you hear about, sometimes, it is either people have been misinformed. We have a record in our office on those who are on stipends. Others went into the programme through the back door.

“If I identify those who came in through the back door, most times, I don’t pay them because it is eating deep into the budget. Although sometimes, I have a conscience because I say (to myself that) these people are Niger Deltans, how can we send our children out into the streets?

“But we have to look at ways we can manage it, so it does not eat deep into our budget, and yet manage them because they are from the Niger Delta. Furthermore, there is also that idea that after your first degree, you want to continue to do a Masters’ degree while you were just sent there to do a first degree. You go and register yourself and then go on protesting that the amnesty is not paying your money.

“Everything that those who complain and protest say, we have to take with a bucket of salt, because amnesty cannot send their students and refuse to pay their school fees.”

Dokubo said since he was appointed, he has tried to pay most of the outstanding backlog. He stressed that payment of stipend is an important factor in maintaining peace and security in the region.

The professor noted that people saw the stipend as an entitlement. “If you have been empowered, given a job and been trained, you have to disengage from the programmme. That is what I am trying to do, and I believe I will l do that with the support of the staff I have in my office.”
