Titilola- Sodo noted that the Governor -elect was a well- bred person, noting that labour believes that Makinde would address all issues pertaining to the welfare of workers .

“In deference to this man of honour and to assure Mr . Seyi Makinde of the good intentions of Oyo State workers , the strike action is hereby suspended , and workers are hereby directed to resume immediately . ”

He emphasised that some of the demand of the workers have been on the table of the outgoing government for the last one to two years .
