NLC suspends strike in Kaduna

NLC protest in Kaduna

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has suspended the five-day warning strike in Kaduna State.

The labour union had asked workers to begin industrial action over the sack of thousands of workers by Kaduna State Government.

Chairman, Kaduna chapter of NLC Ayuba Suleiman told BBC that the union suspended the strike action Wednesday evening and that they would go to Abuja on Thursday to continue discussions with the office of the minister of labour and employment.

“Yes we have suspended the strike action and by tomorrow Thursday we will move to Abuja to enter discussions with the government at the minister of labour’s office,” he said.

Minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed had said the Federal Government was disturbed about the sudden turn of events in Kaduna State, stressing that the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, had waded into the matter.

“At the end of the day, all the parties have to come back to the drawing table to agree and hammer out concessions and agreements,” he said.
