NIN: NIMC workers suspend strike

NIN enrolment exercise will continue on January 11.. This is as the staff of NIMC suspended their strike action

The strike, which was embarked upon over poor welfare, was suspended on Friday.

Barely 24 hours after shunning their official duties over alleged poor welfare amid COVID-19 pandemic, the staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) have suspended their strike action.

This was made known by the president of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) NIMC unit, Asekokhai Lucky, on Friday, January 8, in Abuja,

The NIMC staff who staged a protest on Thursday complained that they were denied allowances and a suitable working condition

But in a U-turn development, Lucky said the strike was suspended after a meeting between the leadership of the agency and the representatives of the federal government. According to him, workers of the commission across the country were being contacted to resume work by Monday, January 11, and begin the enrolment of citizens for the NIN.
