Kuje council workers embark on strike


Kuje (FCT) –  Workers in Kuje Area Council on Thursday embarked on an indefinite strike over non-payment of their monetisation arrears.
Mr Ibrahim Kabi, Chairman of Nigerian Union of Local Government Employee (NULGE), Kuje Chapter, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the action was to make the council meet their demands.
Kabi said: “We decided to embark on an indefinite strike due to the non-payment of accumulated monetisation arrears owed to us since previous administrations.
“The monetisation debt started from Mr Jibrin Wowo’s administration to Danladi Zhin and has continued with the present administration of Mr Shaban Tete.

“We demand that the money should be paid in order to alleviate the sufferings of the Kuje Area Council workers.
“If the monetisation had been paid in instalments, I think by now they would have paid off all the arrears.
“We will resume work as soon as our demands are met.’’
The council chairman (Tete) was said to have travelled out of the area and could not respond to calls put to him for his reaction.
Other council officials declined comment on the development.
NAN reports that the council secretariat was closed to workers and visitors alike as security operatives barricaded the entry. (NAN)
