Iku Baba Yeye appeals to striking workers not to occupy Oyo govt secretariat

RECENTLY, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba (Dr.) Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, pleaded to workers of the six state-owned tertiary institutions in Oyo State to suspend their plan to occupy the Oyo State government secretariat over their unpaid salaries.  Oba Adeyemi made the appeal when the workers visited him in his palace to solicit for his intervention.

Kabiyesi commended the workers for considering him worthy of intervention in the matter, saying if they had gone ahead to occupy the secretariat in Ibadan, without exploring all available avenues, they might not get the desired result.

Having listened to the workers through their spokesperson, Chairman, Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the five trade unions (ASUP, COEASU, NASU, SSANIP and SSUCOEN), Mr. Adeniyi Babatunde Afees, Oba Adeyemi, after due consultations with the Oyomesi, the Supreme advisory body in Oyo kingdom, put a call through to the state governor and informed the workers that he and the governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, would meet on the matter later.

Oba Adeyemi urged the workers to always toe the path of caution and peace when fighting for their legitimate right.
