Written by Samson Ojeniran on May 9, 2023
To ensure total compliance to the strike action declared by Nigerian Labour Congress NLC, Abia State, the leadership of the Union has started picketing government offices in Umuahia.
The NLC had directed her members to withdraw their services to Abia State Government and stay at home from 12 midnight on Monday.
Speaking to newsmen at one of the locations, the state NLC Chairman Pascal Nweke said the Union decided to resume the strike it earlier suspended following government’s failure to meet up with agreements they reached on issues concerning welfare of workers.
Some of the offices picketed by the labour leaders, include the office of the Head of service, that of the Secretary to the state government as well as ministry of finance.
