Government, economic, and sociopolitical activities crumbles as Cross River state workers commence indefinite strike

Cross-River State

Government, economic, and sociopolitical activities have crumbled in Cross River state as workers commenced indefinite strike action in the State.

All government offices in the state have been closed by the order of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) as workers were forced out of their offices by the unions.

Correspondent who went round the state capital observed that government workers ignored the threat of the state government of No Work No pay and obeyed labour leaders.

The state governor, Prof. Ben Ayade had, through the Special Adviser Administration, Governor’s office, Calabar, Mark Obi threatened to deal with any worker who obeys the call for indefinite strike action by labour.

Government in the press release repeatedly aired on state radio and television warned civil servants that they should remember the labour law that says no work no pay and warned them to rescind their decision on the planned strike action.

But DAILY POST observed at virtually all the government primary and secondary schools visited, pupils and students roaming the streets as their teachers drove them out of their classes.
