Workers of the National Foods, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) are set to embark on a two-week warning strike. The employees have been at loggerhead with their management.
The aggrieved employees, Wednesday, held a rally, where the strike action was declared. They claimed the NAFDAC management had turned a deaf ear to their plight. During the protest, the placard-carrying employees stormed the agency’s headquarters located at Oshodi, in Lagos to disrupt activities. They urged President Buhari to intervene in the industrial crisis.
Peter Anzaku, Chairman of NAFDAC Worker’s Union, Lagos Branch, told journalists that Federal Government needed to urgently intervene because of the role NAFDAC represents in the country.
“We have written several memos to government on this regard since 2012 because of our quest for industrial harmony but to no avail, hence this unavoidable strike,” Anzaku said.
