The affiliation said the strike activity followed the supposed refusal of the state government to respect fomentations on the requirement for improved government assistance bundle for its individuals. 

The choice was contained in a letter mutually marked by the ARD OOUTH President and the General Secretary, Dr. Popoola Mutiu and Dr. Osundara Tope individually to the State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, a duplicate of which was made accessible to our reporter in Abeokuta yesterday, lamenting the absence of reaction to the specialist's situation by the administration. 

The affiliation noticed that the mentality of the legislature to past strike notice letters indicated it was not worried about their government assistance and censured the expansion in risk stipend from N5,000 to N10,000 as a negligible act. 

The specialists, be that as it may, said their individuals working at the COVID-19 segregation community will be pardoned from the strike activity. 

The letter incompletely peruses: "There has been no responsibility at all from the legislature on the issue of proper compensation, passage level, new the lowest pay permitted by law, risk stipend and extra security for our individuals. 

"Notwithstanding the insufficient reaction of Ogun State government to the wellbeing dangers stood up to by our individuals during this COVID-19 pandemic, our individuals proceeded to proceed with their work perseveringly in their different divisions and at the segregation place. 

"We were shocked by the subjective change in just danger stipend to be given as COVID-19 Special Hazard Allowance to all wellbeing laborers," the affiliation deplored.
