The leadership of Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees(NULGE) in Oyo State, on Tuesday instructed its members to resume work on Wednesday, three weeks after it directed members to stay away from work.
In a memo titled “resumption of duty,” dated February 18, 2020, and signed by the state secretary, Chucks M. Nwankwo, NULGE said: “our press release of 25th January 2020 and our letter vide NULGE/OYS.4/Vol.VII/56 of 4th February 2020 on the above subject matter is pertinent.”
“The SEC-in-Session on Tuesday, once again appreciate the co-operation and solidarity of our members with the ‘Sit at home’ directive issued in the wake of the leadership feud in our respective Local Governments and having reviewed the prevalent situation resolved as follows:
“That our members resume work immediately, i.e with effect from Wednesday, 19 February 2020.
“We salute you as we continue to jointly stand up for your welfare, safety, and security,” Nwankwo said.
The state chairman of NULGE, Alhaji Bayo Titilola-Sodo, also confirmed the development.
He said members have been directed to resume back to work on Wednesday morning.
“Since it is past 4.00 pm already. We’ll resume back to work on Wednesday morning,” the chairman said.
It would be recalled that the union directed its members to stay away from work on January 27, following the crisis between the sacked members of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria( ALGON) and the constituted local government caretaker committee members over the administration of the 68 council areas in the state.
