Amid Strike, Niger Gov Approves Trucks Of Rice As Palliatives For NLC

by adminnigeriareports

Governor Umaru Bago of Niger State has approved two trucks of 50kg bags of rice for the State’s Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) chapter as palliatives to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal.

Bago announced the approval during the reception to celebrate the newly constructed office of the Deputy Governor, Mr Yakubu Garba, in Minna.

He disclosed that the initial N110 million approved for NLC was for their logistics to monitor the distribution process of the palliatives across the 274 wards of the state.

“Labour, we have given you work to go round and supervise the palliatives’ distribution, but for the labour union, we have not given you palliatives.

“We only gave you logistics to go round and supervise distribution. Now, as a government, we will give you two trucks of 50kg for distribution,” he said.

Bago added that the money was for the members of the NLC to effectively monitor the distribution process to ensure that the palliatives get to everyone.

The NLC is currently on a two-day warning strike which the national body declared following the removal of the petrol subsidy and the hardship that followed it.

The governor, however, advised the union to shelve its strike and congratulated the deputy governor on his new office.

In his remarks, Garba, appreciated the governor for a cordial working relationship and pledged to discharge his responsibility for the progress and development of the state. (NAN)
