The Ogun state chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress has fired at Governor Dapo Abiodun for not fulfilling his end of the promises he made in the build up to Ogun 2019 governorship elections.
The union, who had been in face-off with Ex-governor Ibikunle Amosun publicly rejected the former governor and his candidate Adekunle Akinlade, throwing their weight behind Dapo Abiodun.
Governor Dapo Abiodun who had earlier agreed to sit together when he becomes the governor and restructure how the state is going to pay deduction, pensions, gratuities, leave bonus, and so on has failed according to reports.
Flip back to 2019, Chief Olusegun Osoba, the former Governor of Ogun State led Dapo Abiodun and the APC team to the Labour House, assured Ogun workers of better welfare and good governance as soon as Dapo Abiodun is elected as the next governor of Ogun State.
Dapo Abiodun during the period had earlier signed a memorandum of understanding with the union to show commitment to the wellbeing of the workers and assurance to provide good governance when elected. Also, promises were made to ameliorate the challenges of workers and set agenda as soon as he is sworn-in.
However, Ogunreporters confirmed there is a twist of fate between the Ogun NLC and the government, as none of the promises made by Dapo Abiodun has seen the light.
While addressing the group of protesters earlier yesterday, the Chairman of Ogun NLC, Comrade Emmanuel Bankole declared the Dapo Abiodun as an empty one. He declared the governor doesn’t understand what governance is all about and advised him on leaving the government house.
“We cannot afford to have an absentee governor. Ogun state is too civilized to have an absentee governor. Governance is a serious business. This our governor is not ready, let him pack his bag and go”, Bankole fires at Governor Abiodun.
However, the union has embarked on a 7-days warning strike after a meeting that was held ended in deadlock
