The Nigeria Labour Congress have announced the begining of an indefinite strike starting on Thursday Morning.
The industrial action would be starting in the early hours of Thursday. This is to protest the delay in fixing a new minimum wage for public servants.
Various unions had mutually issued a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government, threathening to embark on strike if they fail to continue negotiations on the minimum wage.
Peter Ozo-Eson, the NLC’s General Secretary, issued a statement saying ;
