Kaduna: Labour declares strike over mass sack of civil servants

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), yesterday declared a five-day strike in both public and private organisations in Kaduna State, to protest the mass sack of workers by the State government.

Recall that the Kaduna State government had disengaged 4,000 workers across the 23 local government areas of the State earlier this month.

The NLC Central Working Committee said it took the decision to withdraw services of workers in Kaduna at a meeting held at the Labour House, in Abuja.

Addressing newsmen at the end of the meeting, NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, said the five-day withdrawal of service by workers in the state will be indefinite, if the State government does not show remorse.

Reacting to the development, Wabba described the action as “arbitrary and cruel”, and called on the Kaduna State government to reverse the mass sack.
