The Nigeria Labour Council (NLC) Borno chapter, on Friday called for the immediate lifting of the 16 years embargo on employment in the State.

The Vice Chairman of the congress, Alhaji Bulama Abiso, made the appeal during the 5th Quadrennial Delegates Conference of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria in Maiduguri.

Abiso said government should give priority attention to employment.

He stressed the need to revive dormant shoe factory, soda ash plant, wire and nail industry and the Borno State Fertiliser Company.

He said the industries, when revived, would generate more revenue and employment for the state.

Abiso also appealed to government to ensure the full implementation of N18, 000 month minimum wage especially to local government teachers who are yet to benefit from it.

He urged government to also provide houses to its civil servants to ameliorate their suffering. (NAN)
