The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has denied the reports that the current training of workers is politically motivated.

According to Mimiko, the training organised by the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) is to sensitise workers to survive during hard times.

The governor, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr. Kola Ademujimi, said the criticism by the opposition parties was to discredit the patriotic efforts of the trade unions.

He said it was ridiculous that the opposition would criticise the training, adding that the workers had the choice of deciding whom to vote for at the governorship election.

The one-day seminar held in Akure, was titled: “The Survival of Workers in the Face of Economic Recession in Nigeria.”

Ademujimi said the governor had warned at the beginning of the year that the workers should prepare for the effects of the economic recession.

According to him, “People would always read meanings to things like this, but we are not going to stop doing the right thing because we have an election at hand.

“Whether there is an election or not, we have the right to hold meetings with our workers at anytime. The reason for the seminar was partly for the workers to also appreciate what the government has done.”

Mimiko said his government has done well for the workers by paying them13th month salaries and 27.5 per cent of teachers’ allowances.

    I understand the governor has promised to pay the workers their seven months salary arrears provided they vote for Jegede. If it’s true,then the governor is the most wicked human being on earth. And I’ll implore the workers not to vote for Jegede and see whether the heavens will fall. His days of karma is just around the corner judging by destinies he had destroyed due to his mismanagement. He has failed woefully in govt.
