Nationwide Strike: Bauchi Gov Appeals To NLC, TUC To Suspend Planned Action

Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has begged Organized Labour to suspend its planned strike, arguing that the move will hurt the nation’s economy. 

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) declared an indefinite strike beginning from Monday owing to the hike in electricity tariff and the government’s inability to reach a consensus with them on a new minimum wage.

After his Saturday visit to the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti in company of Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC), Governor Mohammed, appealed to labour to reconsider its action.

According to him, his appeal comes from a deep concern about the strike’s negative impact on the economy of Nigerians, warning that the nation could be plunged into a state of extreme hardship.
