The Nigeria Labour Congress has threatened to halt economic activities in Imo State within the next 14 days if the State Government fail to recall 3,000 workers laid off by the state.

A factional leader of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, who gave the ultimatum in Lagos at a news conference, said the Imo State Government must recall the workers or face the wrath of labour.

Ajaero noted that the government would have devised a means of paying owed workers, rather than firing its workforce.

 He further decried the incessant lay off of workers by state governments who feel the workers can no longer defend themselves..

According to Ajaero, Governor Rochas Okorocha had earlier denied his government was not planning to sack workers but did after 48 hours.

The labour chief insisted that should the government fail to take any decision at the expiration of the ultimatum, labour would ensure that there would be no electricity supply in the state, closure of banks and total collapse of economic activities in the state.

He said labour waited for various negotiations on the issue before wading in and that they would ensure that sanity was restored in the state.

He said it was wrong for the government to terminate the jobs of workers on air without negotiating with their representatives as required by law.

Ajaero regretted that the State Government was among those that benefited from the bailout funds from the Federal Government and yet could not pay workers.
