The Chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress, Sokoto State chapter, Comrade Abdullahi Jungle, has appealed to the government to as a matter of urgency implement wage awards to the state civil servants.

Jungle while addressing newsmen shortly after embarking on the national protest declared by the national secretariat of the union, further called for distribution of palliatives.

The rally, which started from the secretariat of the union in the state, took the protesters through Miyetti Allah roundabout to the government house and terminated at the secretariat.

He appealed to the Federal Government to stop further devaluation of naira which he described as the genesis of the current economic hardship in the country.
