Ogun State  Government has expressed  displeasure at various attacks on school teachers in the State, soliciting for the support of the Organised Labour to put an end to the ugly trend.

Dr. Aigoro pleaded with the Organised Labour to be closer to his office, have regular consultations in order to come up with solutions to some collective problems being faced in Ogun State, assuring them that Government was looking into the germane issues bothering on welfare of the workers with the aim of putting smiles on their faces.
“Government is not happy with the attacks on teachers in our schools, the brutality must stop. Also, I am aware of the issues of workers’ welfare raised, all these are being addressed. We should work together, break the jinx of not meeting regularly. I plead with you to be closer to my office for regular consultations and proffer solutions to the problems” he said.
