ARREARS: Ogun NLC hands Amosun over to God

The Ogun State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, said on Monday that it has handed the outgoing governor of the state, Ibikunle Amosun to God and his conscience for judgment.

The labour union said this through its state Chairman, Emmanuel Bankole, who addressed newsmen at the NLC Secretariat in Abeokuta.

The union also called on the governor-elecr to be prepared to inherit debts left behind by his predecessor.

“This is to state in clear terms the magnitude of indebtedness of outgoing administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun to the public servants in the state and also to correct erroneous impression and falsehood being peddled around that the outgoing government is not owing public servants in the state.

“We have waited so long, hoping Amosun will keep to his promise and settle all outstanding arrears of gratuity, pensions, salary arrears, leave bonuses, deductions, check-off dues and tertiary institutions monthly subventions.

“While it is true that some payments were made to workers in the core civil service, a large number of our members in the local governments and tertiary institutions were not paid.

“Though we are helpless today and the excruciating pains and scars will take time to soothe, we leave you to God and your conscience”, Bankole said.
