Workers in the Ogun state Civil service have sent a Save Our Soul(SOS) messageto the government of Prince Dapo Abiodun over accumulated unpaid deductions.
The call was made recently by Ogun State Salary Earners’ Co-operative Thrift and Credit Union Limited after there have used all available means to call the government to their plight.
The cooperative union, in a statement jointly signed by its President, Bodude Tanimola and the General Manager, Sunday Ajayi,appealed to the government of Prince Dapo Abiodun to do something urgently in order to stop the unwarranted deaths caused by the non-payment of their entitlements.
The union,however, lamented that 17 months of the deductions were not remitted by the State, making it difficult for workers to access their voluntary savings and to obtain loans.
It also added that children of many of its members have dropped out of school over their parents’ inability to fund their education.
The union leaders expressed dissatisfaction that many letters of appeal were written to the Governor,Prince Abiodun, the Head of Service and others but were ignored.
It would be recalled that the government of Prince Abiodun inherited zero unremitted cooperative deductions, but has since owed 17 months since he assumed office in 2019, despite his promises to take workers welfare his priority.
