Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bola Ojuola, Akure

Civil ser­vants in Ondo State yesterday be­gan a two-day warn­ing strike over their two months un­paid salaries.

Pri­mary school chil­dren were also or­dered to stay at home. When our cor­re­spon­dent vis­ited some gov­ern­ment of­fices in Akure yesterday, most of them were locked up while se­cu­rity men guarded the en­trance of the gover­nor’s of­fice and some min­istries.

The lead­er­ship of the or­gan­ised labour in the state on Tues­day di­rected the work­ers to stay at home if the two months salaries promised by the gov­ern­ment were not paid be­fore the close of work but it was gath­ered that some of the work­ers re­ceived bank alerts for one month salary on Tues­day night.

The state de­scribed the em­bar­rass­ment un­pa­tri­otic act.
