“We are here together to discuss the ultimatum we gave the state government on our demands and it will end by Monday, March 2 at 12: a.m.

“That is why we summoned an extra-large meeting to inform our members about the situation. “There has not been a positive response from the government with respect to our demands.

“We have directed members to go on and mobilize ahead of our industrial action which is coming up on Tuesday,” he said.

Alhassan said although the congress received an invitation for a meeting from the government on Wednesday, the invitation will not stop labour from going on with the strike.

Also speaking, the state Chairman of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Alhaji Hussaini Yelwa, said all unions under the congress had been mobilized for the strike.

According to him, all members of the unions have been mobilized to take part in the strike.
