The NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, who led the workers in the protest declared that there “is no retreat and no surrender,” until the state Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai reverses the sacking of workers and pay those who have been sacked about four years ago.
He stated that the Kaduna State government has been feeding the public with lies as none of the labour unions and their leaders were consulted as claimed by the government.
