Oyo workers protest govt. plans to privatize public schools

Business and vehicular activities were on Wednesday paralyzed in Ibadan, Oyo State capital as the Nigeria Labour Congress, protested planned privatization of some public schools in the state and non-payment of over six months’ salary.

The NLC in the state had embarked on an indefinite strike barely eight days ago to demand the immediate withdrawal of all trump-up charges leveled against some incarcerated labour leaders and to rescind its decision to sell-off any public schools in the state, among others.

The protesters were led by the Deputy President of the union, Comrade Kiri Mohammed Shuaibu, Comrade Peter Adeyemi and the Chairman of NLC in the state, Comrade Waheed Olojede.

‎In his remarks, Deputy National President of NLC, Comrade Peter Adeniyi Adeyemi has said  the main reason why the union is  protesting was to further drive home their demand for the immediate payment of six  months outstanding salaries  of  workers in Oyo State.
