Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar
By Seriki Adinoyi
Talks between Plateau State government and its striking workers did not yield desired results, as it ended in a deadlock - meaning the workers' six months strike continues.
President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar, who on Thursday arrived Jos to broker peace, lamented the development while briefing journalists on Friday, saying strikes are inevitable, which are usually the last resort of workers to get what they want from their employers.
He added that workers and employers will not remain apart forever, and that it is normally expected that when a dispute reaches a climax as it is now in the state, it should start coming down.
