Drama as workers protest to bid DG farewell in Kwara

The exit of the outgoing Director-General of Michael Imodu National Institute of Labour Studies (MINILS), Kwara State, Salihu Alabi was on Friday greeted with drama as workers of the institute under the aegis of Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Unions (NASU) on Friday bade him farewell with a protest.

The workers alleged that the five-year tenure of Alhaji Alabi was characterised with maladministration.

The placard-carrying protesters urged the federal government and the Ministry of Labour to appoint a new director-general that would effect a the positive turnaround in the institute.

The protest, which was staged at the entrance of the institute, was jointly conducted by both senior and junior staff, just as they chanting solidarity songs.

Some of the placards read,’’MINILS shall never return to Egypt,’’ No promotion arrears in five years,” “We urge FG, ministry of Labour not to bring Alabi back.” MINILS has been reduced to private venture”, among others.

Speaking with journalists during the protest, the NASU’s state secretary, Comrade Oluwasina Owoeye and the chairperson of the union, Comrade Roseline Adebayo, described the five-year administration of outgoing DG, Alhaji Saliu Alabi, as ineffective and incentive to the development of the institute and welfare of the workers.

The workers later swept the premises of the institute as a symbolic farewell activity to send away the DG, and subsequently held an interfaith prayer session against a return of what they described as ‘unproductive adminstration.’

“Disaster is all that the DG had brought to the institute. He refused to listen to words of wisdom. Our hostel accommodation has gone bad, no working tools, stationery. Files are not attended to. Our institute has become a ghost city and ineffective. The management has failed to promote the ideals of the institute. We don’t want persons of Alabi here again”, they said.
