As organized workers begin the strike in Kwara state today against the non-payment of the N30,000 minimum wage, stakeholders in the state have continued to call on workers to file the action.

Stakeholders, including the Kwara State Gamjo Members Association, GAMJI, urged unions to show understanding with the state government, which has chosen not to lay off workers in the face of declining incomes caused by the pandemic. of coronavirus that currently ravages world economies.

GAMJI is an umbrella body for the followers of the late Prime Minister of the northern region, Sir Ahmadu Bello.

Recall that the 14-day ultimatum given to the state government ended on Sunday when efforts by the two parties to reach a truce during the period ran into brick walls.

The petition, contained in a statement signed by the publicity secretary of the pan-Nigerian group Alhaji Abdullahi Yinka Agaka, said: “While we understand the point of view of the unions especially from the point of view of the rising cost of living, we warn that taking industrial action is not the solution. This is especially true when we consider the fact that state government finances are already seriously affected. “

“As the state government has been doing, we also call on workers to reconsider, engage in more conversations and appreciate the fact that the government, whatever its imperfections, has shown good faith in managing the welfare of workers and infrastructure development, even during COVID-19 when it never stopped paying workers’ wages like other states. “
