Ogun Govt Commiserates With Labour, Family Over Teacher's Death

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has sympathised with the Organised Labour, the Nigerian Union of Teachers and the family of Mr. Sunday Ogunjimi, a teacher, who died last Friday during scores of workers' protest at the secretariat of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) in Abeokuta. 

The governor in a statement by the  State Head of Service, Dr Nafiu Aigoro, made available to Edu-biznews on Sunday, described the death of the late Comrade as a big loss not only to his immediate family and Labour, but also to the state at large.

His words, “We are pained by the unfortunate death of your colleague, who until his death was a teacher and member of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in Odeda. As a workers' loving Government, losing a worker in such a circumstance is so devastating. We pray  that God will grant the deceased eternal rest and comfort the family, colleagues and associates he left behind". 
Abiodun reiterated his administration  commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of the workforce

 “Our Administration is a promise-keeping one and we shall strive to honour all the terms on the agreement reached with the labour leaders,"the governor  stressed 

According to him,  although death is an inevitable end to all mortals, citizens should endeavour to take personal health more seriously by regular medical check-ups, physical exercise and ensuring that they rest very well.  

"On our part, Government has invested a lot in the health sector and even provided a health insurance scheme that is worker-friendly and affordable at all levels starting with our primary health centres up to the tertiary level”, the statement concluded.
