The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Zamfara State chapter, has joined the nationwide protest against economic hardship.

Its members marched to the office of the State’s Head of Service, Barrister Ahmed Liman.

Speaking at Liman’s office, the chairman of the State wing of the NLC, Comrade Sani Haliru, said the protest was not only for the workers but for the entire people of the country.

“The alarming rate of hunger and starvation, suffering has become so worrisome and unbearable that the labour forces have no option than to go on protest”, he said.

According to him, a series of meetings have been held between the Labour and the Federal Government but the meetings could not produce any beneficial result.

The State NLC boss however commended the state government for clearing the backlog of three months salaries of workers and pensioners even though he inherited such liabilities from the past administration in the State.

Liman commended the labour for protesting peacefully.

He assured that he would convey their message to Governor Dauda Lawal for appropriate action.

DAILY POST reports that there was adequate security during the protest.
