The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State has described the government of Governor Dapo Abiodun as “wicked” and “insensitive” for reportedly “refusing to accede to the legitimate demands of workers in the state, despite several demands,” from the Organized Labour leaders.
DAILY POST reports that workers in Ogun State have 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 satisfied with the peaceful conduct adopted 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 to DAILY POST 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.
He, however, said, “As it is the usual character of Gov. Dapo Abiodun-led government not to hearken to warnings and advice, it is saddening to note that such patriotic intervention from a responsible party playing its role as a strong opposition party fell on deaf ears.
“Without any shade of doubts, Ogun workers and indeed, the general public by extension, now know that cautions and advice relating to issues that bother on workers’ welfare and core issues of progressive governance have become matters of inconvenience to the APC ruling government.
“Owing to our irreducible belief that no worker should be treated with indignity, our great party is left with no other option than to identify with the Ogun workers whose genuine discussion with the representatives of the government ended in deadlock, as the wicked government completely refused to accede to the legitimate demands of the workers despite several concessions made by the Organized Labour leaders,” the Ogun PDP Publicity Secretary said.
Meanwhile, the PDP, while reiterating its unalloyed support for all issues bothering on workers welfare, enjoined the leadership of the Organised Labour to remain calm and law-abiding while the strike lasts.
