The state Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress, Emmanuel Bankole, made this known while interacting with members of the Labour Writers Association of Nigeria at a workshop held in Abeokuta on Sunday.‘’Where we are currently is that the workers have been pushed to the wall; there are procedures when we want to go on strike and we have taken the pain to go through all that.In her address, the French Ambassador to Nigeria, Madam Emmanuelle Blatmann, said the project was a success story, which was a result of passion, commitment and partnership on the part of government and Fanmilk/Danone company, She said the facility would contribute to the development of the economy and locally produced milk.‘’We have gone beyond promises: that is where we are now,‘’ he said.” City Round gathered that the suspect would be prosecuted upon completion of investigation.According to him, some of the demands include remittance of 21 months of salary deductions; implementation of the Contributory Pension Scheme.Olayinka Akinkugbe, lauded the state government for being investor-friendly, adding that the model dairy farm initiative was aimed at increasing milk production and creating jobs for the host community.Others were payment of eight years of leave allowances; restoration of payment of gross salary and the implementation of Consequential Adjustment on Minimum Pension.He said, “This year’s theme will focus on transnational drug challenges, stemming from situation of crises.
