NIMC workers threatens strike over poor welfare

Workers’ union in the National Identity Management Commission said it would proceed on strike after the expiration of its 21-day ultimatum to the Federal Government.

The grouse of the union against the Federal Government bordered on the deplorable state of NIMC enrolment centres across the country.

The 21-day ultimatum letter was signed by the Secretary-General of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Isaac Ojemhenke, dated November 8, 2019 and addressed to the Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Minister of Labour and Employment, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Director General of the State Security Service, Inspector General of Police and NIMC management.

The letter said the deplorable state of NIMC enrollment centers across the country, occasioned by leaking roofs, poor furniture and lack of toilet facility, had resulted in staff member’s deadly encounters with snakes and other reptiles.

It added that poor condition of the working environment and inhumane welfare had also resulted in workers death. The letter also stated that while NIMC offices had no diesel to power generators, stationery and internet facility, workers salaries were reduced and allowances stopped. It also accused the commission’s management of failing to protect staff interests.
