NLC two days warning strikes takes full effect

The strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress to protest the failure of the Federal Government to provide palliatives following the fuel subsidy removal yesteday reportedly grounded economic and commercial activities in several states but workers in Lagos, Sokoto, and Katsina states disregarded the labour action.

Banks and other financial institutions and the civil service in the three states as well as Delta, Bayelsa, and Ogun did not comply with the NLC directive to shut down services as they attended to their customers.

The two-day strike, which commenced yesterday paralysed activities in the Federal Capital Territory and some states with banks, ministries, agencies, and departments shut to the public.

workers in various power firms, under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees, also, joined the industrial action as their action disrupted the supply of electricity across the country.

The NLC leadership in a communiqué released by the labour centre and jointly signed by its National President, Joe Ajaero, and Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, said the two-day warning strike was in preparation for a total shutdown which would start in 21 days a decision taken at the end of its National Executive Council meeting which was held in Abuja.
