NIMC staff end strike, issue fresh 21-day ultimatum 

The 2-day warning strike embarked upon by  the staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC)

The 2-day warning strike embarked upon by  the staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has been called off on Friday. 
This was disclosed by the chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) NIMC unit, Lucky Michael Asekokhai, in an interview with Daily Trust in Abuja on Friday.
“We have called off the strike and all our members are to resume on Monday,” Asekokhai told Daily Trust.
The union chairman, who said the staff had achieved their aim with the 2-day strike, called on the Federal Government to yield to their demands in good time.
He, however, said that a fresh 21-day ultimatum has been issued to the Federal Government to meet the demands of the NIMC staff or risk a full blown strike.
FG to meet with union on Tuesday 
Meanwhile, the Federal Government will on Tuesday meet with the representatives of NIMC staff in Abuja to discuss about their welfare.
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, will lead the FG’s team at the meeting, Daily Trust was told by a top official of NIMC on Friday.
The executives of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) will also be at the meeting, the official who didn’t want to be named said.
The warning strike was embarked upon to demand chiefly for safety measures for the NIMC staff against COVID-19 and also to demand for a new salary structure.
Daily Trust reports that the 2-day strike crippled the National Identity Number (NIN) registration process across the country on Thursday and Friday.
The Federal Government had on December 15 directed telecom operators to link their subscribers’ SIM with their NINs.
