Abuja - Nigeria's labour body denied allegations of receiving money to embark on a strike in the River State.
It has been alleged the Trade Union Congress of (TUC) Nigeria received N100 000 000 to stage the strike.
The Chairman of the Rivers State Branch of the organisation, Chika Onuegbu, denied the allegation in Port Harcourt and described the accusation as an insult.
“The decision to strike followed a meeting of all affiliates plus the Executive Committee. We have 41 affiliates to TUC, which is about 100 people in TUC and 100 in NLC.
"These made a decision. Now, some sections make up allegations. It is an insult," Onuegbu said.
