NLC Threatens Nationwide Strike Over Kaduna Govt's Plan To Sack Workers

Nigeria Labour Congress is threatening to go on a nationwide industrial action if the Kaduna State government goes ahead with its plans to sack civil servants.

A week ago, governor Nasir El-Rufai announced a plan to disengage civil servants in the state, citing fiscal reasons. El-Rufai said a significant amount of the statutory federal allocations to the state is being spent to pay wages.

The governor says the decision was one of the necessary moves to salvage the state’s finances.

NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, says the Kaduna governor failed to consult with the trade union or negotiate payments to the workers the state plans to disengage.

The NLC president also disagrees with El-Rufai’s claims and figures on the amount expended on salaries of civil servants.

Wabba said there is a directive in place that the workers in the state should down their tools, after which a nationwide solidarity strike will follow if El-Rufai insists on the planned retrenchment.
