The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended members of the state workforce for their patriotic courage in confronting the insensitive ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

It also commended the Ogun workforce for embarking on the indefinite industrial action over issues surrounding their welfare.

In a press release obtained by AllNews on Wednesday, the Ogun PDP Publicity Secretary, Bankole Akinloye described the party as one that has been a responsible and workers-friendly political organisation.

"Before now, our party being a very responsible, pro-workers political organization, has made several patriotic calls to the ruling government to prioritize issues concerning workers' salary and welfare., instead of embarking on a weekly voyage of purchasing awards and other irresponsible frivolities.

"We are, however, satisfied that Ogun workers are ready to take their destinies into their own very hands by confronting the hydra-headed monster planning to put their lives in abject jeopardy. 

"Like we have always held, any government that owes 21 months of salary deductions and eight years statutory leave allowances, has not only sent hardworking civil servants on a journey of no return, such government has also lost the essence and character of responsible and responsive government. Such a monster has no business in government.

"For us, with the declaration of an indefinite strike by the workers, members of the general public should accept that there can be no further explanation. The ruling APC government under the grossly incompetent watch of Prince Dapo Abiodun has failed woefully in core areas of governance. Every sector of the state has now felt, known and seen how uninspiring a government can be. 

"At times as this, in line with our party's tradition of standing in solidarity with members of the labour force, we are ever prepared to encourage Ogun state workers who have ensured several years of excruciating pains, agony and unmitigated wickedness under the dying APC misrule."
