NLC Kogi state chapter cancels May day celebration due to non-payment of salary

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) in Kogi has canceled this year’s May day celebration in the state  in protest over the non-payment of workers’ salaries and monthly pensions of retirees.


In a statement released on Sunday in Lokoja, Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) said the decision was taken in solidarity with the affected workers and pensioners.The statement was jointly signed by the state Chairman of the NLC, Mr Onu Edoka and his TUC counterpart, Mr Ranti Ojo.

According to the unions, the non-payment of salary to a large number of workers and pensioners over the past 14 months has destroyed the civil service and the workforce of the state.
