UPDATE: ONDO WORKERS SHUT DOWN STATE SECRETARIAT OVER NON-PAYMENT OF SALARY. There was pandemonium in Akure, the Capital City of Ondo State on Monday March 10, 2014, when Industrial workers under the Joint Public Service Negotiation Council (JNC)shut down the state Secretariat, denying workers from gaining access into their various office. The workers, chanting solidarity songs, were protesting non-payment of their salaries. Bioreports gathered that the ongoing protest was so hot that the aggrieved protesters barricaded the entrance of the State House of Assembly and Governor's office, just as they were chasing workers out of the office. Meanwhile the state Governor Olusegun Mimiko who had had the knowledge of the problem was said to have left the state for Abuja on Sunday evening. Bioreports however gathered that, the governor went ahead with the proposed policy on 'Pension Contributing Scheme' for the state workers without the involvement of various stakeholders through their union such as, NLC, TUC amongst others. It was revealed that the bill has passed first and second readings, in order to stop the bill from being approved by the house prompted workers to shut down the house to abort government's inhuman plan. The workers who angrily turned against the government for refusing to carry them along on the issue of Pension scheme vowed that the state would not witness any peace unless the government reverse this horrendous scheme.
