Workers at the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) have threatened to shut down altogether if the federal government does not respond to their demands.
NIMC workers on Wednesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to view the 20-day window of the industrial action suspension as a boon to meeting all their demands.
He said don’t do it; the government will risk another strike by the Commission.
Speaking to Channels Television, President of the Association of Senior Officials of Nigeria, NIMC Chapter, Asekokhai Lucky, said Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Isa Ali Pantami was not available for the meeting at which he should go to, even though the workers suspended the strike for this reason.
They shouted that the Commission headquarters lacked adequate computers, insisting that this slowed the pace of work.
Workers explain that the process of recording and capturing takes about five minutes, but the lack of adequate computer systems slows the pace of work.
Last week, Commission workers went on strike to protest the weakness of welfare and lack of motivation.
The strike was suspended Monday after the intervention of the Minister of Communication and the Digital Economy.
