Nigeria In Distress: Strike’ll affect payment of salaries, FG warns

Commercial activities in some states of the federation were grounded, yesterday, following the strike declared by organised labour to press home demand for a new minimum wage.

This came as the Federal Government, yesterday, warned that the strike will affect payment of salaries, even as it met the leadership of organised labour in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to know what led to the ongoing warning strike that paralysed socio-economic activities in different parts of the country.

While the strike was total in states such as  Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Rivers,  Kebbi, Ogun, Oyo, Adamawa, Ebonyi, Yobe, Niger, Jigawa, Benue and Kogi, there was partial compliance in others.

In Lagos, while civil servants and other public workers complied, there was partial compliance by the private sector,

Most of the business units of Eko Distribution Company, Eko DISCO and Ikeja Distribution Company, Ikeja DISCO, were shut by members of National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE.

Some banks that opened for business in Ikeja area of Lagos were forced to close shop by labour leaders, including the President of Association of Senior Staff of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions, ASSBIFI, Mrs Onyinkan Olasanoye, as they monitored and enforced compliance.
