NLC suspends strike in Imo


In Imo State, the Nigeria Labour Congress has halted its current strike.

In a statement, Joe Ajaero, the national president of the NLC, declared the suspension of the strike.

According to the statement, "highly respected and well-meaning Nigerians from within and beyond Imo State" were responsible for the strike's suspension.

According to the statement, the lifting of the industrial action was done to allow state residents to cast their ballots for the candidates of their choice in the House of Assembly elections taking place this Saturday.

The statement read, "Due to persistent interventions by highly respected and well-meaning Nigerians from within and outside Imo State; assurances by agents of the state government to make amends; and especially, in order to have an enabling environment for citizens in the state to perform their civic duty on Saturday, March 18 by way of voting for State House of Assembly candidates of their choice, on behalf of the Nigeria Labour Congress, I hereby announce the suspension of the ongoing strike action in Imo state.

"The suspension is expected to last two weeks during which the state government or its agencies are expected to meet up with the demands of the workers in the state.

"In the event this window of opportunity is not being utilised, the Nigeria Labour Congress will be left with no choice than to resume the suspended action with more ferocity."
