A report by The Nation claims Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state was booed by some angry workers in the state on Tuesday, March 4.
According to the report, the workers who were in their thousands, repeatedly booed Governor Amosun, calling him names for alleged hostile disposition towards their colleagues in the state.
The incident reportedly led to Amosun hurriedly adjourning his meeting with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba and other affiliate unions.
The governor was said to have rushed out of his office on being notified the irate workers had already hit the road and were advancing speedily to the Government House
As the governor sighted them, he was said to have driven himself away in a black jeep and the aggrieved workers began to boo him, calling him many names.
The workers urged Wabba and other NLC leaders negotiating with the governor on behalf of the aggrieved workers to be tactful and apply utmost wisdom, alleging that Amosun is accustomed to reneging on his promises to workers.
Responding, Wabba said they were already in a dialogue with respect to four fundamental issues affecting state workers and that a commitment had been obtained from the Amosun he would address those issues.
The NLC leadership added that one of the four issues is the call for reinstatement of the state NLC chairman, Akeem Ambali, who was sacked over a year ago.
He announced Ambali has been reinstated by the governor, assuring that their presence in the state is not politically motivated.
According to him, before the close of the day, NLC would sign an agreement with the state government regarding its commitment to address the issues of unremitted salary deduction, contributory pension funds, unpaid salaries and allowances of staff of Tai Solarin College of Education, Omu - Ijebu among others.
Meanwhile, a group, Movement for Yewa/Awori for Governor (MOYAG) has described the suspension of Governor Amosun from the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the end of the party in the state.
The group in a press briefing in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, said Governor Amosun’s suspension is a suspension of the party in the state.
The group's convener, Mr. Sola Oyekanmi, canvassed support for the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) governorship candidate, Adekunle Akinlade.
