Union directs traders to open shops tomorrow
Traders across the country have been enjoined to open shops tomorrow and disregard any call contrary to the position of their mother union, Harmonised Traders Union of Nigeria.
The National President of the association, Dr. Bature Abdulaziz, during an interactive session with journalists in his office said that the decision calling for marketers to open shops was reached during an emergency national exco meeting on the recent fuel price increase and the removal of oil subsidy.
“We are calling on all our members to go ahead to open their shops and do business as usual. The issue of strike action as proposed by some groups is not the best at all,” he insisted.
Abdulaziz who is also UN Peace Ambassador, called on Nigerians to always remember that Nigeria should be placed above all other interests, emphasising that both government and labour leaders should find solutions to the crisis at hand.
While calling on marketers to shun any call for any form of strike action, Abdulaziz reminded that when the nation falls into crisis, marketers suffer the most.
He maintained that they were still hopeful that the nation would be out of the hardship facing people, sooner or later.
