Workers of Emmanuel Alayande College of Education Oyo on Friday grounded vehicular movements in the heart of the ancient town as they protest the non-payment of their 13-month salary.
This followed the expiration of the 14 days ultimatum on Thursday, November 2, 2017, where they had threatened to withdraw their services should the state government not clear all outstanding arrears and restore 100 per cent salary payment.
The protest is going on the folloing state institutions: The Polytechnic, Ibadan; Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo; Oyo State College of Agriculture and Technology; The Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa; The Oke-Ogun Polytechnic, Saki; College of Education, Lanlate.
The peaceful rally has, however, led to gridlock in the town.
