Looming Strike: Labour Issues receiving prompt Attention —Ondo Govt

Press Statement

LABOUR ISSUES RECEIVING PROMPT ATTENTION

The attention of the Ondo State Government has been drawn to a widely circulated correspondence to the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN. Among others, the letter in question made allusions to various issues in respect of industrial harmony.

It is pertinent to state that the issues raised in the correspondence are not new. They are neither peculiar to Ondo State, especially during this period that has compelled states to undergo unpleasant economic challenges following the drastic drop in both Federation Allocation Account and Internally Generated Revenue.

Nevertheless, the Ondo State Government has always considered the welfare of workers very paramount and shall not play politics with this avowed commitment. It is on record that as at today, Ondo State ranks among those states with a higher level of worker-friendliness among the comity of States in Nigeria.

Our inherited liabilities as well as unforeseen occurrences notwithstanding, this culture of commitment shall be heightened.

In this regard, Mr. Governor will meet the leadership of all such concerned bodies between Monday 13 and Wednesday 15 of July 2020. This is with a view to engendering a very robust engagement and interface.

Government therefore, uses this medium to appeal to all workers to await the outcome of these series of engagements aimed at deepening Industrial harmony in Ondo State.

Signed

Donald Ojogo
Commissioner for Information and Orientation
