From Victor Duruamaku Owerri

Imo State Government, has appealed to the state wing of the organized labour Congress, not to join in the June 7, 23 scheduled Nationwide strike action to protest the removal of oil subsidy by the Federal Government

According to an official statement issued in Owerri Monday by the Chief press secretary to the Governor, Mr Oguwike Nwachukwu the state Government has  planned and arranged palliatives  for all the workers in the state


The official statement said,”  Governor Uzodimma spoke when he met some of the labour leaders on Monday ” noting  that ” the State could not afford to embark on a strike over the  fuel subsidy removal because it is coming up with palliatives that will cushion the effects of the  removal.”


He pledged to meet with the labour leaders soonest to discuss his plans and explore ways of expanding his pragmatic palliatives for workers.


Uzodimma  according to the statement,  appealed to the labour  to have compassion on the poor masses as they would suffer the consequences more should the organised labour embark on any strike action
