We are dying – Ogun workers cry to Abiodun over 17 months unpaid deductions
Workers in Ogun State have cried out to Governor Dapo Abiodun to pay their salary deductions, saying “we are dying.”
The Ogun State Salary Earners’ Co-operative Thrift and Credit Union Limited alleged that Governor Abiodun had refused to pay their 17 months outstanding co-operative deductions.
Monthly, workers who are members of the Ogun State Salary Earners’ Co-operative Thrift and Credit Union Limited, save a percentage of their salaries with the union.
It was learnt that the money is to be deducted by the state government and paid to the union on behalf of the workers.
However, the union said 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.
