Kano government offices and other facilities were closed due to a labour strike.



The Kano State branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has joined the nationwide warning strike by closing down government offices and other services in the state.

The labour union was on the ground as early as 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning, according to Vanguard.

Ado Riruwai, the State Vice Chairman of the union who spearheaded the enforcement effort, informed Vanguard that the union had shut down all government offices in the state.

Riruwai, who also serves as the state’s Chairman of Private Sector Unions, further stated that all electricity sectors and banks were under lock and key.

He went on to say that they were heading to the airport to ensure that no flights took off from there.

“We have shut down the entire power sector,” he claims. Banks are not open for business. We heard a flight took off from the airport this morning, so we’re heading down there to make sure no other flights take off.

“All government offices were under key and lock,” Riruwai explained.

Among the sites that have been closed is the Kano Electric Distribution Company, or KEDCO, headquarters.

Remember that the NLC had announced a two-day warning strike to protest the acute mass misery and destitution caused by the elimination of fuel subsidies across the country.
