NIMC workers suspend strike, NIN enrolment exercise to continue January 11

NIMC workers have suspended their strike as the enrolment for NIN continues.

The leader of the protest in Bayelsa, Paul Soroh, lamented that as personnel work hard to ensure all Nigerians get their National Identification Number (NIN), the federal government on its part has failed to provide necessary tools for them to carry out their duties efficiently.

But in a U-turn development, Lucky said the strike was suspended after a meeting between the leadership of the agency and the representatives of the federal government.

According to him, workers of the commission across the country were being contacted to resume work by Monday, January 11, and begin the enrolment of citizens for the NIN.

Barely 24 hours after shunning their official duties over alleged poor welfare amid COVID-19 pandemic, the staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) have suspended their strike action.

This was made known by the president of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) NIMC unit, Asekokhai Lucky, on Friday, January 8, in Abuja, The Punch reports.

The NIMC staff who staged a protest on Thursday complained that they were denied allowances and a suitable working condition.
