Workers, Banks, Others Ignore NLC Strike In Kaduna

Government workers in Kaduna State Wednesday defied the order of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to go on strike to protest the hike in the price of petrol announced by the federal government.

As a telling evidence of the cracks within labour and the divided stance of many in the country on the removal of subsidy, rather than obey the NLC order on industrial action, workers resumed for duty as usual all over the state, notably the state secretariat complex along Independence Way, where staff were observed at their posts as early as 7:30am.

Also, banks, schools, markets and other private establishments in the state capital opened for normal business.
