The Speaker, Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Ibrahim Abdullahi, has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to shelve their planned indefinite strike for the overall development of the country.

The call is contained in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Jibrin Gwamna, in Lafia on Sunday.

Mr Abdullahi said that the strike would affect the socio-economic activities of the country negatively, hence the need for his appeal for more time and realistic dialogue.

“I want to appeal to the leadership of the NlC and TUC to shelve their planned strike in the interest of peace and for the overall development of the country,” he said.

The speaker appreciated Nigerians for their loyalty and support to the government since independence in the country.

Mr Abdullahi said that the progress and development achieved so far in the country were a result of citizens’ loyalty and support to both the past and present governments in the country.

The speaker congratulated all Nigerians at 63 and Nasarawa state at 27 on the successful Independence Day celebration and wished them more fruitful years ahead.

“I want to appreciate our founding fathers for ensuring that we got independence in the country.

“Since we got independence in the country, so far so good, the country is progressing and is moving forward despite our challenges, we are not stagnant as a nation and as a state,” he said.

The speaker also urged Nigerians to use the Independence anniversary and reflect on the sacrifices of the nation’s founding fathers.

He called on all and sundry to strive towards ensuring that the labour of the nation’s founding fathers was never in vain by contributing positively to the development of the country.

Mr Abdullahi also called on Nigerians to continue to pray for the nation’s unity, peace, progress and development.

Besides, he urged the people of the state and Nigerians to support President Bola Tinubu, Gov. Abdullahi Sule and other leaders to succeed.

“I want to call on Nigerians to continue to pray and support President Bola Tinubu, His Excellency Gov. Abdullahi Sule and other leaders to succeed.”

The speaker further appealed to Nigerians to continue to remain law-abiding, respect constituted authorities and live peacefully with one another for development to thrive.
