Kano – The National Harmonised Traders Union of Nigeria has called on its members across the country to ignore the planned strike by Labour unions.
The President of the union, Alhaji Bature Abdul’Aziz, made the call while briefing newsmen in Kano on Monday.
Abdul’Aziz said the call was necessary following a meeting of the National leaders of the union in Kano on Saturday.
“We are calling on all traders across the country not to join the planned strike by the labour unions.
“This is our stand and it is part of the resolutions we reached at our meeting held in Kano on Saturday,” he said.
According to him, the union has also directed its leaders in the 36 states of the federation to convey the message to their respective members.
The president said the union would continue to support government policies and programmes that were aimed at promoting development in the country.
He, however, called on the Federal Government and the labour unions to embrace dialogue for an amicable resolution of the dispute.
He also called on Nigerians, irrespective of their religious or political inclinations, to support the federal government in its efforts to develop the country. (NAN).
