The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) employees have threatened a complete shutdown if their requests are not met by the Federal Government.
On Wednesday, NIMC employees urged the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to see the suspended industrial action’s 20-day timeframe as an advantage to meet all their demands.
It claimed that failure to do so would result in the government risking a further strike by the Commission.
The Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, NIMC Chapter, Asekokhai Fortunate, speaking to Channels Television, said that for this cause, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, was not available for the meeting where he is supposed to answer even though the employees suspended the strike.
They screamed that the Commission’s headquarters lacked sufficient computers, demanding that the speed of work be slowed down.
The staff clarify that it takes only five minutes to record and capture the process, but the absence of appropriate computer infrastructure slows down the speed of operation.
Commission employees went on strike last week, complaining against inadequate health and lack of inspiration.
After the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy intervened, the strike was suspended on Monday.
