Ogun govt. commiserates with labour, deceased family over teacher’s death

1 Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun has sympathised with the Organised Labour,  Nigerian Union of Teachers and family of late Mr Sunday Ogunjimi, a teacher in the state.


2 Ogunjimi  died on Friday at the secretariat of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) in Abeokuta.


3 In a statement  on his behalf by the State Head of Service, Dr Nafiu Aigoro, the governor 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.


4 The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Ogunjimi had slumped and died at the state secretariat of the NLC  in Abeokuta, when the labour leaders were about to address the state workers on the outcome of their meeting with the state government.

5 NAN further recalls  that the organised labour in the state, embarked on indefinite strike on Tuesday, but the strike was eventually called off on Friday evening.

6 Abiodun said: “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 Local Government Area.

7 “As a worker-friendly 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.

8 Abiodun reiterated government’s commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of the workforce.

9 He stated that his administration remained a promise-keeping administration, and would strive to honour all the terms of agreement reached with the labour leaders.

10 He added that although death was an inevitable end to all mortals, citizens should endeavour to take personal health, more seriously, by engaging in regular medical check-ups, physical exercises and ensuring that they rested very well.

11 “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,” he said.
