The Nigeria Labour Congress’ (NLC) nationwide two-day warning strike came to a close in Kwara State on Wednesday without any unpleasant incidents being reported.
Government buildings, banks, and courts in Ilorin, the state capital, remained closed while labor leaders went clandestine.
Despite the fact that Comrade Murtala Saeed Olayinka, the state chairman of the NLC, was unable to be reached for comment regarding the strike action, 460play reported that there was complete compliance across the state.
Recall that the state was shut down on Tuesday as a result of the two-day warning strike action that was taken in response to the Nigeria Labour Congress national body’s request for a warning strike over the elimination of gasoline subsidies by the federal government.
Some of the banks that initially refrained from participating in the strike on Tuesday eventually did so, claiming that their respective head offices had not given them the go-ahead.
Comrade Tunde Joseph, the chairman of the state TUC, acknowledged that his union stayed out of the strike because “the national body is against the strike action.”
Comrade Kayode Ehindero, the chairman of the National Union of Agriculture and Allied Employees, called the strike “a success.”
