The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Kogi have directed public service worlers in the state to stay away from work on Monday, November 2, to protest against non-release of bailout funds by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Thedirective was contained in a statement signed by the State Secretary of the NLC, Mr John Faniyi, and his TUC counterpart, Mr Joseph Kolawole and issued in Lokoja on Saturday.
They expressed dissatisfaction with the non-release of the N50.8 billion bailout fund due to the state.
“This directive is to serve as protest against the non-release of the money.’’
In the statement, the unions said they were surprised over the silence by the CBN/the Federal Government.
While asking workers to fully comply with the order, the labour unions warned commissioners, permanent secretaries, directors and other categories of senior public offices not to report for work to avoid embarrassment.
