The labour union on Monday began an industrial strike, protesting the sack of thousands of workers by the Kaduna State Government.
They marched around with banners, one of them read: “Hell Rufai, stop poverty, hunger and insecurity. Stop the mass sack. Respect workers and human rights.”
The five-day warning strike, according to the Kaduna NLC chairman Ayuba Wabba, is for the government to reverse its decision and recall the sacked workers.
In solidarity with the protest by the the NLC, the Kaduna International Airport (KIA), Public hospitals, filling stations, and schools have all been shut.

Whatever the point you want to prove, you can prove it without calling him 'hell rufai' this is very disrespectful, the worst part is that it's coming from an organization like NLC, this is uncalled for. pic.twitter.com/vZqAvBCQ6T
