Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State
The Joint State Executive Council of the Benue State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress has directed workers in the state to begin an indefinite strike as from Tuesday (tomorrow).

The directive is contained in the communiqué signed by Joint State Executive Council of the state chapters of the NLC and TUC in Makurdi.

The communiqué jointly signed by Godwin Anya, Philip Nongu and Ordue Tanterger, the state chairmen of NLC, JPNC and TUC respectively, partly read,  “SEC resolved to embark on total, comprehensive and indefinite strike with effect from Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 to press home its demand of seven months salary arrears for state workers, March to September, 2017, 11 months’ salary arrears for teachers and local governments’ workers, November 2016 to September 2017 and 13 months’ arrears of pensions and gratuities for state and 14 months for local governments’ workers.”

The labour leaders in the communiqué noted that the indefinite strike was necessitated by the inability of the state government to meet their demands after the seven-day warning strike.
