The union challenged anyone with such information to make it public and swear to an affidavit with their names rather than hiding under any faceless association

In a statement in Ado Ekiti signed by the chairman of the Union, Mr Sola Adigun, ASUSS stated that non of its members, leaders, either jontly or individually has ever held any secret meeting with any candidate nor campaign for or against candidates of any party.

Adigun maintained that ASUSS as a labour union is opened to discussion with all candidates in the next week election for the protection of the interest of its members.

He explained that in line with the resolve of all labour unions to be opened to discussion with all parties candidates, the union would meet publicly with anyone that approaches it, just as it had met with the candidate of the ruling party.

According to him, the meeting of the union with the candidate of the All Progressives Congress was publicly held and not a secret, neither does it imply endorsement, rather an exercise of its right as a Union just as done by its sister union, NUT and mother unions, the NLC and the TUC who had met with the APC candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi and others.

Adigun maintains that as a Union, its right to associate and demand for better living is inalienable and guaranteed under section 40 of the 1999 constitution.

The ASUSS chairman restated the loyalty of the union and it’s members to the government of the day which is the employer of its members.

The union also appealed to the authority of the DSS to release the principal and two junior workers of OlaOluwa Grammar arrested in the school premises.
