Protest sparked off in the early hours of Monday in the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, when a large number of external security guards, cleaners and other manual workers troop out in their numbers to protest the non-payment of 13 months salary by the management.
As observed by The Bridge News Correspondent, in Ibadan, on Monday morning, the protesters, who are not under the payroll of the Federal Government, gathered at the East Gate side of the hospital, trekked through the Alexander Brown Hall ABH to the main gate of the Hospital.
One of the workers, who spoke to our correspondent during the protest, said: “this is grossly unacceptable and I see this as fighting for our right. The money belongs to us ad we must be given. It is wickedness on the part of the management”.
Another protester who also craved anonymity stressed: “the management is callous. We cannot continue to be working and suffering. We have children at home who expect us to give them money but we have nothing to give. We cannot tolerate this anylonger.”
