NLC suspends strike in Kaduna

The Nigeria Labour Congress has suspended its five days warning strike in Kaduna State following an intervention by the Federal Government.

Announcing the suspension, the NLC President,  Ayuba Wabba said the decision is to honour the invitation of the FG on Thursday to mediate in the dispute between labour and the Kaduna State Government.

Dr Chris Ngigi, the Minister of Labour and Employment, had waded into the ongoing face-off between the Kaduna State government and labour unions by inviting both parties to a reconciliation meeting.

The meeting scheduled to hold at the Ministry of Labour and Employment in the Federal Secretariat, Abuja is to be attended by the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai and top officials of the State; as well as the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress,  Ayuba Wabba and top NLC leaders.

Ngige’s intervention comes days after the NLC started a protest following the disengagement of over seven thousand civil servants at the state and local governments by the Kaduna State government.

The strike has paralysed critical sectors of the economy in the state and the state governor Nasir El-Rufai in reaction declared the NLC Chairman and other leaders wanted for economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure in Kaduna State under the Miscellaneous Offences Act.
