• 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)
