Governor Dapo Abiodun has invited leaders of the organized labour in Ogun state for a dialogue today on how to resolve an indefinite strike by civil servants which began on Monday.
The first day of the strike has crippled public services in schools, courts, hospitals, house of assembly, and the state government secretariat, Abeokuta.
Ahead of the meeting, the governor told the striking workers that they will be receiving alert for their salaries for the month of June, latest today.
Information and strategy commissioner, Alhaji Abdulwaheed Odusile in a statement on Monday, said the proposed meeting aims at discussing all the issues raised by the organised labour in its list of demands.
According to the commissioner, the governor decided to take personal charge of resolving the grievances of the striking workers, as part of his continued commitment to their welfare.
Odusile said that Abiodun noted that most of the issues raised by the organized labour in its list of demands were inherited from the past administrations.
The governor, however, said that as a responsible leader,he had been tackling the inherited labour related liabilities one at a time.
The governor, according to Odusile, also said that Ogun state is one of the few states nationwide, that was not owing salaries, despite its dwindling allocation from the federation account.
The commissioner said Dapo Abiodun explained the dwindling allocation for a long time now, has been affecting the ability of his administration to meet some of its obligations.
He, however said that the available resources are being prioritized in the interest of the workers.
