NLC Suspends Workers’ Strike In Imo State

Nigeria Labour Congress has suspended its ongoing industrial action in Imo State.

The suspension of the strike was announced by a statement issued by the NLC National President, Joe Ajaero.

The statement disclosed that the suspension of the strike is due to interventions made by “highly respected and well- meaning Nigerians from within and outside Imo state.”

The statement stated that the lifting of the industrial action was to enable residents of the state vote the candidates of their choices during this Saturday’s House of Assembly elections in the state.

Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, had earlier promised to meet the striking workers.
