Ondo workers suspend strike

By Dayo Johnson

Akure – Ondo State public workers yesterday suspended their two-week-old industrial action over the implementation of the N18.000 new wage.

Chairman of the Joint Negotiating Council, JNC, Comrade Solomon Adelegan, said the suspension followed the intervention of stakeholders and prominent individuals in the state.

Adelegan said  Governor Olusegun Mimiko had also withdrawn the circular that annulled the agreement reached on the N14,000 salary  about a month ago.

After over five hours meeting to review the two- week-old strike, the labour leader said the strike had been suspended following the governor’s action.

He said: “The intervention by major stakeholders in the crisis had made the state governor to approve the withdrawal of the controversial circular.

“Now that the governor, who we all hold in high esteem, has agreed to withdraw the circular, I hereby urged all civil servants to go back to their duty posts with immediate effect
