According to the Minister, he is constrained to call the meeting by exercising his powers as the Minister of the Federation.

He said: “I am therefore constrained in the exercise of my powers as the Minister of Labour and Employment, under the Trade Disputes Act, CAP. T8, Laws of Federation of Nigeria (LFN) 2004; to invite you and your top officials to the emergency trade dispute conciliation meeting”

The meeting is to be attended by the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai and top officials of the State; as well as the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba and top NLC leaders at the Ministry of Labour and Employment in Abuja.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) embarked on a five days warning strike coupled with protest in Kaduna State since Monday May 17, 2021 to compel the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai to reverse the mas sacking of Civil Servants in the State.

The Kaduna State Government had shown great frown towards the strike, prompting the issuance of an arrest order on the National Chairman of NLC, Ayuba Wabba among other executives of the body.

The Kaduna State Government has however expressed that there is no going back on its decisions as the State Governor stated it that the protest “cannot change anything”.

The Federal Government is however intervening to create a final resolution on the matter.
