The Organized Labour in Niger State, led by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), has formally declared an indefinite strike action. The strike, scheduled to commence at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, the 21st of February 2024, comes in response to unresolved issues affecting Niger State civil servants.

Key Points from the Declaration:

  1. Strike Commencement: The indefinite strike is set to begin on Wednesday, the 21st of February 2024, at 8 a.m., unless comprehensive resolutions are met.
  2. Open for Negotiation: Despite the strike action, Organized Labour expresses a willingness to engage in negotiations. They outline specific conditions for dialogue, including a formal invitation, reversal of disputed appointments, a clear statement on wage payment, and withdrawal of recent appointments.
  3. Concerns Over Appointments: Labour raises concerns about contested appointments, including those of Executive Directors, Commission Chairmen, and Directors General in various agencies. They emphasize the need for fairness and eligibility in such appointments.
  4. Opposition to Unqualified Permanent Secretaries: Organized Labour strongly opposes the appointment of permanent secretaries who are not eligible or within the service. They call for the withdrawal of recent appointments and advocate for career progression from within.
  5. Protection of Teachers: Labour calls on the government to desist from victimizing teachers and members in the educational sector, citing incidents related to a debate by primary school pupils in Agaie LGA.
  6. Commitment to the New Niger Project: Despite the strike action, Labour reiterates its commitment to the development of Niger State and the realization of the “New Niger” project.
  7. Lack of Official Responses: Labour expresses dissatisfaction with the government’s lack of official responses to previous correspondences, attaching copies for reference.
