NLC Calls On Nasarawa Govt. To Implement Full Benefits

The Organised Labour are asking the Nasarawa State Government to pay civil servants full January salaries and to implement all promotions with benefits from two thousand and eleven to date among other demands.

The ongoing strike is predicated on twenty one point demands which after five extensive meetings between the government and the Organised Labour has been trimmed to fourteen.

Addressing journalists in Lafia, the State Head of Civil Service, Joseph Ancho says the government is mindful of the adverse effects of the strike and appeals to the Organised Labour to reciprocate the concessions made by the government.

He affirms that the full January salaries are ready for payment contrary to speculations making the rounds.

Meanwhile the state Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Abdullahi Adeka insists the strike continues until the government is ready to implement all their demands.

On his part, the Nasarawa State Comptroller of the Federal Ministry of Labour Halhatu Umar affirms the Ministry will ensure the two parties resolve amicably.
