The statement signed by Secretary of the group in the state, Usman Danturaki, and addressed to all branch chairmen and secretaries, disclosed that the strike action would continue until further notice.

The statement reads, “Following the inability of government to reverse its decision on the deductions unilaterally made in the month of June, coupled with its blatant refusal to offer any convincing reason as a rationale behind the deductions despite series of promises made, you are hereby directed to commence an indefinite strike action from Thursday, 6th August, 2020 until further directed.”
