Lagos 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 press in front of Motorways Premises, near 7-Up bus stop, Ikeja. The protesters carried placards with inscriptions appealing to the management of LAMATA to pay them their salaries.
They said that they had not been paid since March, 2017.
The Head of Media and Communication LAMATA, Mr. Kola Ojelabi, has been contacted, and he said that the state government was processing the funds for the payment of the sweepers.
