Workers of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) have vowed to go on an indefinite strike unless the government reviews their salaries and appoints a substantive director general for the agency.
The workers ended a two-week warning strike on Wednesday but said they were prepared to shut down the agency again until their grievances are addressed.
The workers held a brief protest on Thursday morning at the headquarters of the Agency in Wuse, Abuja.
Led by the vice chairman of the agency’s branch of Medical and Health Workers Union, Idzi Isua, the protesters chanted and waved placards in front of the complex.
Speaking to Premium Times, Mr. Isua said the workers had resolved to begin an indefinite strike soon if the authorities of the agency did not accede to their request.
