A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Prince Rotimi Obadofin, has urged the Kogi State government to prevail on council chairmen in the state not to sack workers.

Obadofin, who made this call while speaking with journalists in Lokoja, said the government should take a clue from the Osun State government that employed over 20, 000 youths in less than 50 days in office.

He said sacking 10, 000 youths from the local government councils in the state will further fuel insecurity in the state, stressing that an idle hand is the devil’s workshop.

“As bonafide citizen of Kogi, I am opposed to any form sack for workers in the state in whatever guise. The labour market is already soaked up. What do you think that those denied their source of livelihood will fall back to? This will create a security challenge in the state.

“If anybody has to be retired, if they are due for it, pay their entitlements. We want Kogi State to emulate Osun State, where the governor employed over 20, 000 youths. In virtually all departments and ministries, many youths were employed and that was why Osun has a low crime rate in the country,” he stressed.

On the death of the former South African President, Nelson Mandela, Obadofin described the death of the late icon as a great loss to South Africans, Africa and the world.
