Our source who went around public offices in the city reported officers were stationed at their duty posts including Obasanjo House, the State Government Secretariat.

Educational institutions also opened whilst some banks and hospitals were opened to the public.

A nurse at the Barau Dikko Hospital told our source there has been no official notification from the state chapter of the organized labour over the commencement of the strike.

“We only heard of the strike order in the media, there has been no formal notice yet either from the Nigeria Labour Congress or our union, the nurses’ union, but we are waiting,’’ she said.

It was also reported that activities are ongoing at the state High Court even though local union leaders agree to meet today in order to take a decision regarding the industrial action.

The officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) were in a meeting at the secretariat deliberating on how to enforce the strike.
