Benue Workers, Doctors Commence Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in Benue on Tuesday embarked on indefinite strike over non-payment of salaries, pensions and gratuities.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the union commenced the strike following the collapse of negotiations between labour and the state government.

A correspondent of NAN who monitored the strike in Makurdi reports that all government offices were under lock and key in compliance with the NLC directive.
