Niger State council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has appealed to the state governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, to provide fertiliser and other farm inputs at subsidized rate for jobless youths and civil servants to ease the pressure of the harsh economy on them.
The state chairman of the NLC, Comrade Idrees Abdulkareen Lafene, made the appeal, while celebrating the 2023 International Workers’ Day on Monday.
He also advised Governor Bello to meet the demand as a parting gift before he leaves office in May 29, 2023 as a way to reciprocating the cooperation enjoyed from civil servants during his eight years tenure.
The NLC chief however expressed the workers’ agony that the governor did not implement the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS) approved since 2018.
