NLC protest mass sacking in Kaduna

By: Bisola Bello January 12, 2018

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) are protesting Kaduna government sacking of around 22,000 teachers after they failed a competency test.

The union described the sackings as “callous”, saying it will leave thousands of workers and their families without a livelihood.

Unions have also called for a strike across Kaduna state to show solidarity with the affected workers.

Meanwhile, the government has also fired about 4,000 administrative staff at local government level in order to reduce what it called a “bloated and unproductive” civil service.
