Governor Fayose paid labour leaders N10m to end strike – Group alleges
A group of workers in Ekiti state, under the aegis of Enlightened Workers’ Forum (EWF), have accused Governor Ayo Fayose of giving N10m to six labor leaders to end the strike.
Daily Post reports that the Coordinator of the group, Mike Bamidele, said “One wonders what gave Labour the impression that the Federal Government would again be willing to release another bailout to Fayose when the first one had not been accounted for.
“This is a mark of failure on the part of the Organized Labour and we in the EWF are not surprised about the development as we had anticipated this failure right from the onset.
“Against this background, therefore, it will be wrong and illegal for any Labour to attempt to coerce the workers back to work through the back doors without achieving anything. Negotiating one month salary on their behalf after about five weeks strike is not only anti-worker but also criminal.”
