Kwara State civil servants on Tuesday commenced industrial action to press home their demand for the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage by the government as labour leaders denied receiving any court injunction.

The Kwara State NLC Chairman, Mr. Issa-Ore, while commenting on the level of compliance by the workers, said that the labour leaders received no court injunction on the strike.

Though the state government on Monday said it had secured an injunction from the National Industrial Court restraining the workers from going on strike, civil servants in the state shunned their offices to comply with the directive of the organised labour in the state.

“We have not received any court injunction from anyone that we should not go on strike to fight for the implementation of the minimum wage which has become a law in the country,” he said.
