Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna state, has vowed that his administration would not honour a meeting with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) unless electricity is restored in his state, Premium Times reported.
VAM News gathers that El-Rufai made the comment after the NLC suspended a five-day warning strike embarked upon to protest the Kaduna government’s planned mass sack of civil servants over an alleged severe fiscal crisis.
The NLC explained that it suspended the industrial action after the intervention of the minister of labour, Chris Ngige, who requested parties to sheathe swords for a federal government-mediated negotiation to hold in Abuja on Thursday, May 20.
However, shortly after the suspension of the strike, Governor El-Rufai said no official of his government would negotiate with the unions unless electricity is restored in the state. The governor also lambasted the federal government for allowing workers of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) owned by it to disrupt electricity supply to his state.
