The organized labour in Benue state has issued a one week ultimatum to the state government to immediately pay workers the April, 2016 salary or risk industrial action.

In a communique issued at the end their joint meeting in Makurdi signed by the state chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Godwin Anya, his Trade Union Congress (TUC), OrdueTartenger, and the chairman Joint Negotiation Council, Philip Nongo, labour expressed dismay that the April salary was yet to be paid workers two weeks after the state joint account was read.

They wondered why some top government functionaries are out to frustrate Governor Samuel Ortom’s harmonious relationship with labour even when the governor issued a standing directive on an issue.
