The national leadership of the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees ( NULGE) has ordered all its members in Oyo State to stay away from their duty posts pending when the vexed issues on local government administration in the state are resolved .
The order followed an emergency meeting in Ibadan on Saturday.
Citing security reasons for its decision, NULGE said the no-work order to its members across the state was in view of the friction between the sacked members of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria ( ALGON) and the newly constituted local government caretaker committee members in the state.
The state Chairman of NULGE, Alhaji Bayo Titilola-Sodo, said the decision, taken by the highest policy making body of the union, was biding on all council workers and the resumption date would be determined later.
Some embattled elected ALGON members in the state forcefully resumed duty at their former offices few months ago in protest of their sack.
