Ex-textile workers protest, give FG 7-day ultimatum

Coalition of textile workers laid off about 10 years ago protested yesterday over non-payment of entitlements and gratuity accrued to them to the tune of N7 billion. The textile workers, therefore, gave the Federal Government seven-day ultimatum to pay the money.

The protesting ex-workers said if the government failed, they would mobilize over 7, 000 of their members to take to the streets.
The aggrieved workers, who barricaded the entrance of the closed Kaduna Textile Limited yesterday, were carrying placards with different inscriptions ranging from; ‘we are dying of hunger’, ‘pay us our benefits’ and ‘our children are engaging in prostitution’, among others.
