The organised Labour in Ekiti State has protested against the ongoing mass sack of workers by the Ekiti State Government.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the state government recently sacked 1,000 workers of Ekiti State University (EKSU).
Also sacked were 200 workers of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH) who received their sack letters few days to Christmas.
The Labour movement, in a letter addressed to the governor, expressed disgust at the development, which it described as “as ill-timed and too arbitrary.”
It warned against continuation of the trend, claiming that there were also plans to sack more workers across all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and schools.
