Addressing a cross section of workers in Calabar, the state capital, NLC Chairman, Comrade John Ushie enjoined workers to resume work with immediate effect following its two-week strike action.

According to the Chairman, the decision arose from a meeting by the state government and the joint body for the interest of the state and workers at large whose continuous absence at their duty post would have a negative effect on the state’s economy.
