The Senator representing Kebbi South senatorial zone, Bala Ibn-Na’Allah, has commended Kebbi State chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, for suspending their industrial action.

Recall that the state labour unions had directed its members to suspend the indefinite strike which began Tuesday midnight over unpaid leave grant and adjustment on the new minimum wage, among other demands.

Issuing a statement on Thursday, Mr Na’Allah commended the maturity exhibited by the leadership of the NLC, calling for cooperation and understanding between the state government and the labour unions.

He urged them to do more by engaging the state in a meaningful dialogue and negotiation in order to amicably find a solution to the various demands presented to the state by the NLC.

“Kebbi is not insulated from the various challenges facing Nigeria at the moment and the strike invoked upon by NLC will leave a huge scar in our efforts to reposition the state to face our present challenges.

“The various sacrifice given by the NLC cannot be taken for granted by all of us who have been vested with the responsibility of offering leadership to our dear state,” he added.
