Alleged High Handedness: Aggrieved Workers Lock Minister Of Works Inside His Office


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 29TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Minister of Works Dave Umahi was locked inside his office by protesting workers who accused him of highhandedness. 

 Trouble started when the Minister ordered that the gate be locked against workers who came late to work. The union members comprising the Housing and Works Ministry decided to lock up the ministry, blocking entry and exit and preventing the minister from leaving the office.

The protesting workers also claim that Umahi stopped engineers and directors from doing their jobs and has been breaking public service rules since his appointment by bringing in consultants to run the affairs of the ministry.
