download (12)The Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has said the proposed stakeholders meeting on public-private participatory management of some public secondary schools in the state will still go ahead despite the opposition it has attracted from labour unions. The chairman of the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Waheed Olojede, and six members of the congress are presently detained in Agodi prison after they were arrested and arraigned for disrupting the meeting to discuss the return of schools last week.


Meanwhile, the Oyo NLC has directed all public workers in the state to, as from today, the sixth of June, resume at the state Magistrate Court Complex, until their leaders are released from prison custody. It had accused the government of plans to sell-off of some leading schools in the state, under the pretext of a public/private partnership initiative.
