Protesting technical officials cease fire

Some technical officials who were protesting the quality of accommodation and food given them by organizers have called off their protest.

A source at the UNILAG camp of the officials had told our reporter that the technical officials had protested the over the quality of accommodation by deciding to shun the place and refusing to take the food served at the camp.

Initial please from the Local Organising Committee to the dissenting technical officials fell on deaf ears as they stuck to their guns, insisting that they should be given an option of deciding where they would stay.

“At Rivers andKaduna, were given an option to decide whether we wanted to stay and the accommodation provided by the LOC. Money was made available for those who chose to stay on their own,” one of the protesting officials told our reporter.

However, the LOC for Eko 2012 did not have such provision and it insisted that the officials either stayed where they were given or forfeit everything. “It is a win win or lose all situations,” our source said.

“They have now agreed to come to the camp and take the food as well because they are afraid they will lose everything.”
