Nigerian Newssphere recalls that the unions vowed to embark on strike over an attack on the NLC president in Imo state last week.

Speaking during a Channels Television interview on Tuesday, President of TUC, Festus Osifo, disclosed that the unions have agreed to withdraw their services from Imo state starting Wednesday, November 8.

“Both NEC of the Unions decided with effect from this Night; we will start the withdrawal of service across the board in Imo state.

“Flight operations, electricity, and supply of Premium Motor Spirit(Petrol) will be shut down.

“Because for us, what was done in Imo state to Joe Ajaero was barbaric and fundamentally wrong against all norms and principles.

“Tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and through the weekend. Then, if the Government refuses to heed our demands, we will call for a total shutdown on Tuesday”, he said.
