Lawyers in the services of Ondo State government are set to down tool due to what the call inability of government to meet their financial obligations.
The lawyers under the aegis of the legal officers association of Nigeria, LOAN, Ondo State chapter on Monday staged a protest to the governor’s office, Alagbaka Akure.
The LOAN Members who carried placards with different inscriptions such as “legal officers lives matter, no to self financing of government responsibilities, no to boarding of okada” were demanding that allowances approved for them should be paid.
Speaking with newsmen, Chairman of the Association, Mr Babatunde Falodun said the legal officers could no longer work without necessary allowances from government.
Secretary of the Association, Mr Wale Bamisile pointed out that only two of the seventeen vehicles refurbished in the ministry of Justice were returned thereby making it difficult for them to attend court cases.
