NLC Shuts down Kaduna


By John Shiklam in Kaduna

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) led by its president, Ayuba Wabba, on Thursday shut down Kaduna in protest against the sacked teachers and local government workers by the state government.

Thousands of workers, who turned out for the mass protest, marched from the state secretary of the NLC along Independence Way carrying placards to the Government House.

However, the state police command, which warned on Wednesday against the protest, deployed policemen to accompany the protesters.

    El-Rufai must not give in to these workers. I hope he sticks to his guns.

      He needs to put a human face to this policy. I support it, but he must provide other means of survival for the sacked teachers. It’s a fault of the system we operate that has led to the poor level of education. The teachers did not create the problem.

        I give you a thumbs up for your comment. However, they are as much culpable as the system that employed them. With forged certificates that many of them have, they ought to refund all they were paid and do some jail time.
        If he wants to give it a human face, he should either employ them in low skilled jobs, use part of their severance, give them low interest loans and help them get trained in and set up some artisan biz.
