The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has declared that no state officials will attend the meeting called by the federal government.
Recall that El-Rufai and the labour unions have been in a feisty face-off for the past 5-days over the mass sacking of civil servants in the state.
This statement is coming after the NLC suspends 5-day strike in the state.
Spearheaded by the Nigeria Labour Congress, the aggrieved workers and other labour unions embarked on a warning strike that paralysed economic and social activities in Kaduna.
In his statement broadcasted by the NTA, Mr El-Rufai said, “No official of Kaduna State will go to Abuja for any meeting with FGN (Federal Government of Nigeria) or NLC when the citizens of the state have no electricity.
“We hold the FGN responsible for (its) inability to assert its ownership rights over TCN (Transmission Company of Nigeria). No electricity, no meeting.”
