We are agitating for eight months salary arrears owed us by the government since 2017. We have held series of meeting with the management and Oyo State Government all to no avail.

So we are agitating for our right; we have shut down the institution because there is nothing we can do than to go on strike. “We are staging a peaceful protest and there will be a press conference at the NLC secretariat today(Tuesday),”
