Recall 3000 Sacked Workers Or We Will Shut Down Imo, NLC Threatens Okorocha

Labour Congress, NLC, yesterday insisted that there would be a total shut down of Imo State once the 14-day ultimatum issued to the state government to recall the 3000 sacked workers, settle their unpaid salaries and other benefits that had expired.

The Imo State government is allegedly owing workers of the state’ agencies including Imo State Water Corporation and Imo State Transport Company, between 3 - 15 months salaries and other benefits.

President of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, Mr. Igwe Achese, a member of the 6-man action committee set up by NLC to handle the Imo crisis, said:

“Like we made it clear when we handed down the ultimatum on Friday, January 22, once the ultimatum expires, we will take action and there will be a total shut down of the state. You are aware that both factions of Congress are on the same page in the issue because an injury to one is an injury to all. It was in that regard that a meeting of leaders of the factions in Abuja, set up a 6 man action committee on Imo which I am a member.

“We have it very clear that once the action starts, we will stop fuel and electricity supplies, banks and shops will be closed among others. ”
