Rattled by the threat, Governor Simon Lalong summoned labour leaders for a meeting on Thursday, November 26 to iron out the matter.

However, it appears that Lalong and labour’s meeting was a deadlock as workers took to the street to show their grievances Wednesday morning holding placards and shouting out the governor’s name; demanding that they be paid their salaries in full.

According to local reports, the workers have been on half salaries for over 9 years now and minimum wage not been applicable to them- they earn below national acceptable minimum wage.

Here is a video of the protest below as obtained by Within Nigeria;
