The National Emergency Management Agency ( NEMA ) announced on Thursday the commencement of an indefinite strike which is to start with immediate effect.

It was gathered that the directive to proceed on strike was issued by the Trade Union Congress and the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria in Abuja.

It was learnt that the strike followed a threat that was issued by the workers of the agency in a letter that was written in September this year over the non-payment of their allowances, among other issues.

The Abuja headquarters of the agency was shut down by the workers, as they all insisted that they were not going to work until the management of the agency listen to their demands.

Some of the workers said, despite the letter of threat that was issued in September, the management of the firm had yet to respond positively to the demands of staff.

The letter, it was gathered, was written by the Secretary-General, ASCSN, Isaac Ojenmhenike, and was addressed to the President, Senate President, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and other senior government officials.
