Unpaid Salaries: TUC Gives Oyo State Govt 15 Days Ultimatum

NLC-TUC Rally against corruption

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has given the Oyo State government a 15-day ultimatum to pay workers or face mass action. The union also issued the stern warning to all erring governors or there would be total shutdown in affected states.

The state chapter of the union were joined by members at the national level to protest the unpaid salaries for over 6 months where they called on Governor Abiola Ajimobi to find solution to the crisis as soon as possible

Addressing the protesters, Mr Soji Eniade, Oyo State Head of Service, urged them to remain calm as he added that the committee to be inaugurated between labour and government will come up with a lasting solution to the problem.


  1. Thank you Baba Buhari and Pastor Osinbajo for once again coming to the rescue of these Oliver Twist states of Nigeria in the interest of the suffering workers and people. Your milk of human kindness will not run dry and mercy will not depart from your family. Again Lagos state is not cap-in-hand because Governor Ambode is merciful to its workers and retirees, like the Federal Government.
    As for those jeun-ko-ku (chop-and-quench) state governors-not all the state governors are like that, the day of reckoning is at hand. The EFCC should investigate their private accounts and those of their family and friends not only in Nigeria but also in Britain, America, Cayman Islands, Panama, Dubai, Switzerland, Malaysia etc. to trace what they have done with previous allocations, some of which the Federal Government had to borrow with interest to allocate to these states. They better repent now and return their loot, for everyday is for the thief, but ONLY one is for the owner – the people of Nigeria. Behold, the day of the owner is near for these oppressors. Their wickedness will locate them and the people shall sing in the streets –
    “RUN Pressor man where you gonna run to?
    Run pressor man where you gonna run to? (twice)
    All on that day……..
    You gonna run to the Sea (Britain, Switzerland), the sea will reject you
    You will run to the air (America) the air will eject you
    You gonna run to the land (Dubai, Malaysia, Panama), the land will burn you
    All on that day.”
