NLC added that workers were beginning to be hopeless about the possibility of Governor Fayose, whose tenure is gradually winding up, to defray backlog of salaries and pension, as well as gratuities owed the state workers.

It said it was becoming clearer by the day that the government was not committed to the payment as earlier promised with the way things were going.

This decision was reached at the NLC’s State Executive Council Meeting held in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, which was made available to newsmen in a statement signed by its Chairman, Com. Ade Adesanmi in Ado Ekiti on
Sunday.

Adesanmi said the labour union was finding it extremely difficult to convince the workers that the present government would adhere strictly to its promise to pay up before the Governor –elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi takes over on October 16, 2018.

The union demanded that the government should look for alternative way to offset outstanding salaries, pension and gratuities before situation goes out of hands by paying at least two salaries per month
commencing from July.

Adesanmi pleaded with stakeholders not to read any political moves to this action, assuring that workers in the State remain apolitical and won’t shy away from ensuring that the welfare of members are treated with priority.
