Actress Foluke Daramola's husband, Olukayode Salako, who is the National Coordinator, Change Agents of Nigeria Network (CANN) has called on Labour leaders in the country to proffersolutions to the lingering crisis in the oil sector and the the nations economy rather than compounding it with strike action.
He was a host on radio Continental on Friday, May 20, 2016 with Hon. Abiru Rotimi, Chief Whip, Lagos State House of Assembly to discuss on the current labour crisis which entered the fourth day today.
Kayode said; " I believe, Labour, going on strike and calling out people to protest so that they can shut down the already comatose economy is not the solution to these problems. The solution is to find permanent solution to the problems in the oil industry once and for all. This issue of problems in the oil sector has been a recurring problems. It is always the headaches of every successive governments in Nigeria.
If the Labour is saying the Federal Government should revert back to the former price of 86 naira without their own realistic solution, then the problem of fuel scarcity and the petrol station madness would return. And Nigerians are tired of all these petrol station frustrations.
Obviously, Nigerians are not interested in any strike or protest around this precarious time. What they are interested in is the permanent solution to the problems.
I believe this is what we asked Buhari to go and do in Aso Rock as the President and this is what he is doing.
What I expect Labour to do is to tell Nigerians what they know is the permanent solutions to the problem and not just asking the FG to revert back to our former problems and frustrations.
Nigerians like me are tired of this incessant petrol scarcity madness.
I think most Nigerians prefer to go with the FG since it is a guarantee that the products would continue to be available..."
