Officials of the National Identity Management Communication (NIMC) have decided to embark on a nationwide strike beginning from Thursday, January 7,
The NIMC staff who staged a protest on Thursday complained that they have been denied allowances and a suitable working condition in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nigerian Tribune reports.
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.
Soroh also disclosed that officials of NIMC are yet to receive Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) despite being listed as workers during the lockdown.
“As you know workers on level 12 downwards are not supposed to be at work, but we came out to do this work voluntarily but because of the attitude of government. We are withdrawing our voluntary services until something is done about it.”
