NLC chairman, Akeem Ambali, said with the expiration of the 23-day ultimatum given on September 29, “and with no concrete responsive from the government, we are again giving a fresh 72 hours ultimatum for the government to address our issues or be faced with total strike option by Thursday.”

The executives of three bodies lamented that the situation with them was getting worrisome and alarming.

“We have unremitted deductions totaling 12 months. Six years of uncleared contributory pension scheme, unpaid gratuities and inability to effect necessary promotions in the last 22 months,” the JNC chairman, Comr. Abiodun Olakanmi said.
