The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has suspended for a fortnight the industrial action it imposed on Imo State.

The Congress declared a strike on March 8 allegations of Imo State government’s interference in the activities of its state chapter.

A statement signed by Joe Ajaero, President of NLC, said the suspension of the strike was to ensure an enabling environment for citizens in the state to carry out their civic duty on March 18, by voting for candidates of their choice, in the State Assembly elections.

He also stated the strike was suspended “due to persistent interventions by highly respected and well meaning Nigerians from within and outside Imo State; assurances by agents of the State government to make amends; and especially, in order to have an enabling environment for citizens in the State to perform their civic duty on Saturday, March 18 by way of voting for State House of Assembly Candidates of their choice.

“On behalf of the Nigeria Labour Congress, I hereby announce the suspension of the ongoing strike action in Imo State”

The NLC had ordered electricity cut and closure of the Imo Airport during the strike.
