Why Ogun workers suspended industrial action

17 March 2016, 21:55

Ogun - Labour Unions in Ogun state have called off the strike action after meeting with some respected personalities in the state.

Workers in Ogun State Wednesday night announced the suspension of their indefinite strike‎ “for two weeks” for the governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun to, address their demands.

The state chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress,  Akeem Ambali, who confirmed the development in a telephone chat with our correspondent, said all workers under the employ of the state should resume at their duty posts on Thursday.

He said the suspension of the industrial action became necessary following intervention from well-meaning personalities, including members of the state House of Assembly and top traditional rulers.
