Nasir el-RufaiThe National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, has hailed Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai for paying N29.1 million as compensation to the families of workers killed in a bomb blast in Zaria nine months ago.
Twenty workers died in the incident on July 7, 2015 at the premises of Sabongari Local Government Secretariat when suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers struck.
Those affected in the attack were mostly local council workers from Lere and Kauru councils, who travelled to Zaria for the mandatory verification of their employment status ordered by the governor.
In a statement by its General Secretary, Comrade Issa Aremu, the NUTGTWN acknowledged what it described as “sensitivity” of Governor El-Rufai to the demands of trade unions in the state that families of the 20 dead workers be adequately compensated.
