Check out why Farmers Union Threatens Industrial action

 

The Nigeria Union of Agriculture and Allied Employees (NUAAE), has threatened industrial action over killings of members in the North East and urged the Federal Government to intensify efforts in flushing out the insurgents in the North East and sections of the country to stop further killings of farmers.

The Bayelsa State Chairman of NUAAE, who doubles as the Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, Comrade John Bipre Ndiomu, said the killing of farmers in Borno State is inhuman, senseless and a total setback on the food security of the country and if the situation continues, the union will not hesitate to declare serious industrial action and withdraw its members from the farm.

He condemned the gruesome killing of the defenseless farmers, urging governments at all level to intensify efforts in flushing out the insurgents in the North East region, that the members of the union both in public and private sectors were deeply pained by the unprovoked killings.
