Workers Shut Down Offices as NLC Begins Two Days Nationwide Warning Strike


Workers across the nation have shut down offices following a two-day warning strike directive by the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) over increasing hardship and suffering across the country caused by the removal of fuel subsidy.

In Akwa Ibom, the Chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Akwa Ibom State Chapter, Sunny James urged the government to respect the demands of the Nigerian workers.

James noted that Nigerian workers contribute immensely to the economic growth of the country and as such deserve a rise in salaries, pensions and gratuities.

The State NLC Chairman Sunny James noted that the Akwa Ibom State Palliative Committee will begin the distribution of palliatives from Wednesday with 3000 CNG vehicles to cut down the price rate of transportation in the state.

ADBN Correspondent David Isong reports that workers in banks and other public institutions in the Akwa Ibom state have complied totally with the industrial action.

Meanwhile, the federal government has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to suspend its 2-day nationwide warning strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, made the call at a news conference in Abuja yesterday.
