Amosun says striking Ogun workers have no brain; insists he can’t give what he doesn’t have
Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, has lambasted workers of the state civil service who have threatened to go on strike over unpaid allowances and wages, saying they have no brains.
This is coming after the organized labour, on Wednesday, made real its threat to commence total strike in the state.
The workers had snubbed a meeting initiated by foremost traditional rulers in the state.
At a town hall meeting organized yesterday by the Ministry of Budget and Planning at June 12 Cultural Centre in Abeokuta, the state capital, the governor, while reacting to their actions, said he would not succumb to the demands of the workers.
He said it was insensitive of the workers to be threatening to go on strike even when the economic recession is biting hard on all states.
Governor Amosun said, “We all know this, yet some are not using their brains. They don’t have brains and they don’t know what they are doing. They don’t have sense.
“I cannot give what I don’t have. Teachers alone collect N2 billion monthly.
“If you want to join politics go and resign, you can then become card carrying member of political parties, you can start printing posters if you want to contest,” the governor blasted.
Recall that the Ogun government had vowed to invoke ‘no work, no pay on any worker who does not resume at work.
