They said the state government owed them five months salaries.
One of the protesting oyes Cadets who identified himself simply as Shola, said “We are out on the streets especially at our Head Office today to protest the non-payment of our salaries. The government is owing us five months
He further alleged that, “We don’t know why the management of oyes delisted our profiles from the Portal, they did this so we won’t be able to claim our outstanding salaries again. And life has not be easy for us again. Most of us depend majorly on this program.
We want to urge the Governor , Mr Gboyega Oyetola to please come to our aid, Shola said.
