*Sweepers Strike Over Five Months Of Unpaid Salaries*

Sweepers employed by Dafunol International Limited, a contractor engaged by the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), on Monday staged a peaceful protest over the non-payment of their five months’ salaries.

The sweepers, who were in their sweeping kits and holding brooms, spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in front of Motorways Premises near 7-Up, Ikeja. They also carried placards with inscriptions appealing to the management of LAMATA to pay them their salaries.

They said that they were employed by the contractor to sweep LAMATA-constructed bus shelters along Mile 12-Ketu –Ikorodu Road–Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) axis. They said that they had not been paid since March, 2017.
