These demands come against the background of the 2015 Workers Day celebration across the country.

The Plateau state Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) according to Punch, has directed all its affiliate unions and workers to commence mobilisation for a strike at the expiration of its ultimatum to the state government on May 4.

The directive according to the state NLC charmin, Jibrin Bancir, became necessary following the breakdown of peaceful negotiations with the state government regarding the resolution of workers disputes.

He said: “It is apparent that we must take the last action so that we will not continually be subjected to slavery by the government of Dr. Jonah Jang.

“Plateau workers will not be celebrating the May Day with our colleagues all over the world because of bad governance and inhuman treatment that we have been subjected to over the years by the Jang administration.”

Bancir lamented that the state government had consistently relegated issues relating to workers to the background over the past years “in spite of our struggles.”

He listed some of the issues to include outstanding arrears of minimum wage, non-release of promotion of staff and consistent non-payment of salaries.

Others are the non-implementation of the minimum wage by local governments and primary school employers, non-payment of the outstanding 2012 leave and transport grant as well as non-payment of gratuity and pension to retirees

According to him, the future of workers has been destroyed by a few who see the worker as an enemy that should not be allowed to survive.

“The pains of the workers will not be forgotten as they would be remembered for the sacrifices and positive contributions they have made for the development of the state.

“We have no doubt kept faith with our democracy over the years for the unity of our country, Nigeria, but what we have received in return as dividends of democracy is trauma and anguish that our members have been made to go through.

In the same vein, workers in Borno state have also urged the state government to give priority to the demands of workers.

Mr Titus Abana, the Borno State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), who made the call in Maiduguri during the Workers Day celebration urged the government to pay priority attention to the demands of workers which include the full implementation of the minimum wage for local government staff and primary school teachers.

“Marrying Adesua is the second best decision I made in my adult life” – Banky W

Published

on

Banky W and Adesua Etomi-Wellington are marking their third wedding anniversary today and the couple left sweet posts on Instagram.

The singer shared a video from their wedding and spoke of their love journey.

He wrote:

3 years ago, Susu and I made the decision to love each other forever. But the only reason forever is even possible, is because we made the decision to make God our foundation. And while a foundation is the part of the house that people don’t see, it’s by far the most important.

Because you can fix cracks in the walls, refurbish the rooms and repaint the halls, but you can’t get the foundation wrong if you want any chance of the house standing at all. The structural integrity of a house requires a foundation that is built to last.

I recently heard a Pastor say that love can’t keep a marriage going… he said it takes God and commitment. I think maybe he had a bit of a misunderstanding of what love really means. Because… well, God IS love. And love is commitment. Without both, it certainly isn’t love and it definitely won’t work. People sometimes think Susu led me to God. But it’s not true. God led me to Susu. And He has kept us through it all.

Marrying @adesuaetomi is the 2nd best decision I made in my adult life. The best was re-dedicating my life to Christ.

Susu, I am thankful for you, and grateful to you. You are everything I want and much more than I deserve. You mean the world to me and I intend to spend the rest of my life proving it. I love you now more than ever.
3 years down, I’m looking forward to forever.

I love you. Happy Anniversary Shuga.

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud…It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– 1 Cor 13:4..8

“… and the rains descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
– Matt 7:26

Adesua shared the same video on Instagram and told Banky that apart from Jesus, he is the light of her life.

She wrote:

Three years? Seems like yesterday. Seems like forever.
Three years with my bestie.
Everyone knows you’re my husband but today I want to thank you for being my best friend.
The most attentive, loving, funny, caring, inspiring friend I have ever had.
I thought I knew how to love but omo, you have schooled me.
I never knew it was possible to be with someone this long and not have it be riddled with tons of fights. I’m glad for our low voiced intense conversations. Lol
You don’t make me feel crazy, I don’t have to yell before I’m heard. I don’t have to worry. I don’t second guess how you feel about me. I know I’m valued, as I should be.
Thank you bubz, for just being a correct human being. For the heart that you have. For being quick to be sorry when you’re wrong (whispers…even when you’re not. Lol) (I do the same sha)
For not putting your ego before us. For giving me a home that’s my safe haven. I’m grateful for the home we have built. I always look forward to coming home and it takes a lot to even get me out of the house. Lol.
God has done the most marvellous things these past 3 years. May he continue to be the 3rd cord in this threefold cord. As long as he lives and he shields and we keep him part of our lives, we will never be easily broken.
Apart from Jesus, you are def the light of my life.
May that light continue to shine brighter and brighter.
You, my darling are a force to be reckoned with and the world will remember your name.
@bankywellington I love you doesn’t seem to suffice anymore but I’ll say it anyway. I love you with every fibre of my being. Let’s do this till we’re old and grey and maybe in heaven too?
