NLC in Kaduna embarks on strike and protests


Nigerian Labour Congress in Kaduna state embarks on a massive protest due to the incessant sacking of workers in the state. However, barely 24 hrs after the protest kickstarted, Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai insisted that the protests and strikes embarked upon by workers would not alter plans to sack some of them.

On Facebook the governor posted, "Kaduna state Government affirms that the conditions that compels it to rightsize are not altered by the NLC's campaign of economic and social sabotage."

The NLC were able to provide proofs that showed in 2017 that the government had no interest in public welfare as 21,780 failed teachers in KDSG were replaced by 25,000.

NLC National President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, stated that their grievances against the Government includes the sacking of the 7,000 workers from Local Government in the state, Primary Health Care Development Agency 1,700 workers were sacked, this actions are taken place alongside with high tuition fees, high cost of living.

Wabba stated they would take action and run it full-course of the protest and what can stop it is if the state government pays heed to worker's grievances.

Fuel stations, banks, railways, hospital and airport are closed down as the indigenes in Kaduna state resolved to take charge and take hold  of their destiny, if the situation in Nigeria and Kaduna state doesn't change.

Labour law in Nigeria says, "before you can declare redundancy, labour must be consulted.' The governor said, "he has consulted with the National Union of Local Government Employees". However, NLC states the union is with them and so much of what government says is false.
