Must read

Workers in Zamfara State have joined the current protest by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC against economic hardship in the country.

The protesters stormed the streets and marched to the office of the State’s Head of Service, Barrister Ahmed Liman.

Sani Haliru, chairman of the state chapter of the NLC, who addressed the protesters at Liman’s office, stated that the protest was not only for the workers but for the entire people of the country.

“The alarming rate of hunger and starvation, suffering has become so worrisome and unbearable that the labour forces have no option than to go on protest,” Haliru said.

He further revealed that a series of meetings have been held between the Labour and the federal government but the meetings could not produce any beneficial result.

He also commended the state government for clearing the backlog of three months’ salaries of workers and pensioners even though he inherited such liabilities from the past administration in the State.

Meanwhile, Liman lauded the labour for protesting peacefully across the state while assuring them that he would convey their message to the state governor, Dauda Lawal, for appropriate action.
