FG Bans Aviation Workers From Going On Strike


The Federal Government yesterday banned aviation workers from going on strike, saying they were essential service personnel.

It also apologised to those making use of air transportation and vowed never to allow strike in the aviation sector anymore.

Government’s declaration came against the backdrop of recent strike embarked upon by workers of the Nigerian Aviation handling Company, NAHCo, which paralysed both domestic and international flight operations in Lagos and Abuja last week.

Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, who made the declaration while fielding questions from State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, described the action as wrong, inhuman and against the law.

He said the FAAN Act signed into law by President lMuhammadu Buhari last year prohibits industrial action and riots in the aviation sector.
