“We also met the governor and appealed to him, and the governor welcomed the idea of CCII intervention into the labour crises giving the platform for robust dialogue and peaceful resolution. His Excellency Governor Makinde promised to address the entire workforce and the labour leaders on Monday morning at the State Secretariat.”

The leadership of NLC and TUC were represented, while the Oyo Veterans Labour was led by Comrade. Ibrahim Bolomope.

Comrade Bolomope who led the Labour Union Veteran at the meeting stated that the intervention of CCII and mediatory roles of the Veterans Labour to work towards peaceful industrial relations in the state was highly commendable.

At the meeting were former CCII President-general, Chief Bayo Oyero and Comrade Olusegun Abatan of the NUP among others.

The duo however appreciated contributions of Prof. Olanike Adeyemo, Oyo State SSG, the Onpetu of Ijeruland, Engr. Chief Dotun Sanusi, CEO Ilaji hotel and Sports Resorts, Ibadan and others for their roles in resolving the whole imbroglio.
