. SUSPENSION OF STRIKE ACTION IN IMO STATE
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 on-going 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 not being utilised, the Nigeria Labour Congress will be left with no choice than to resume the suspended action with more ferocity.
Comrade Joseph Ajaero
