The NLC and its affiliate unions have commenced an industrial action in Kaduna state
However, Governor Nasir El-Rufai appears unmoved by the industrial action
The governor questioned the moral ground of the NLC to champion the right of workers
Governor Nasir El-Rufai has remained defiant in the face of the industrial action embarked on by the organised labour in Kaduna state.
The governor suggested that the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is affiliated with the NLC.
He stated that he is ready and will wait for the union leaders and the opposition to carry out their strike.
''Fathers of all Hypocrites: Kaduna will wait for you all - the invisible PDP & affiliates like the hypocritical NLC that is yet to implement the National Minimum Wage Act, 2019 for its own employees.''
Meanwhile, members of the NLC took to the streets of Kaduna state to protest the mass sack of workers.
Daily Trust reported that the strike which started on Monday, May 17, left some travellers stranded and frustrated at the Rigasa Train Station
It was gathered that travellers who bought tickets online were told that the tickets would remain valid as long as they use them on the day the strike is called off.
In another news, members of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) in Kaduna have been ordered by the leadership of the association to suspend their services in the state.
The crucial directive, given in a letter signed by NUPENG's general secretary, Afolabi Olawale, is in adherence to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)'s five-day working strike, Daily Nigerian reported.
Olawale's order was specifically directed to the petroleum tanker drivers chapter of NUPENG in the state on Wednesday, May 12.
