According to news reaching us today,we learnt that Schools in Plateau State were sealed up by labour leaders on Tuesday following the commencement of strike by workers over non-payment of salaries by the state government.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Plateau
Chapter, on Monday declared the beginning
of the strike from 12.00 mid night, to press
home demand for payment of backlog of
salary arrears, amongst others.

Some students, who were not aware of the
development, went to schools only to be
stopped and sent back home, while
boarding students were seen packing their
luggage and heading home.


Reacting to the situation, the state
Commissioner for Information, Mr
Abubakar Badu, said “the financial
disposition of government is not peculiar to
Plateau.

“We are affected by the global recession
which has resulted in fall in oil price and
affected statutory allocation”.

He appealed to the workers to bear with
government and reconsider their action by
calling off the strike in the interest of the
state. (NAN)
