Kogi State Civil servants on Tuesday complied with the directive of the Central Working Committee of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress, ordering all workers to proceed on strike from midnight on Tuesday.
According to reports by newsmen, a visit to the Kogi State Secretariat along Zone 8 road showed no worker turned up for work on Tuesday morning. The only persons at work were security personnel at the premises.
Consequently, reporters also paid a visit to one of the new-generation banks whose doors were firmly closed with only the security personnel seen on duty.
The state Chairman of NLC, Comrade Gabriel Amari, said from Wednesday, November 15, all banks would be shut.
“As for health institutions, we are expecting all patients to be discharged at the latest tonight and the hospitals will fully comply by Wednesday,” Amari asserted.
