Normal activities are ongoing in Kano despite the NLC strike.
Filling stations, markets, private schools and hospitals operate in the city and local government areas, while banks operate through the use of ATMs accross the city and other branches at rural communities.
Our corresdernt who monitored the activities in Kano metropolitan and some neughbouring local government areas reports that most of the residents that had a chat with New Nigerian are not even aware about the strike because normal activities are going on smoothly.
Similarly, some of the politicians seeking different offfices continued with their rallies from one ward to the other in order to have the mandate of their electorates, as seen everywhere while the security agents were also busy going round the city to ensure that all was well during the strike action.
Reacting on the strike action, Malam Adamu Musa Dawaki said that this is not the right time to embark on the strike.
He advised the Nigerian Labour Congress to call off the strike and concentrates on other important activities that would be more vital.
Similarly, Hajiya Maijidda Usman, a retired civil servant lamented that going into strike would not solve the workers problems rather than to retard day-to-day activities, and called on the Federal Government to immediately wade into the matter for the national interest.
