Officials of the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, have been ordered to return to work after a protest against the management yesterday.



The NEMA staff lucked down their head office in Abuja in a protest that was replicated simultaneously across the agency’s offices nationwide.



The workers grievances against NEMA’s management under MUstafha Maihaja as Director General include maladministration, ineptitude, incompetence and inefficiency.


The Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Justin Uche said since Maihaja assumed office in April last year, he had grounded major humanitarian and emergency response operations of NEMA across the federation.


Meanwhile; the management of NEMA has advised its workers to end their nationwide strike and return to work, stressing that it was not given prior notice about the strike.


In a statement signed by the Head of Media and Public Relations, Sani Datti, the management noted that the issues being raised by the angry workers were already being addressed.


Datti said the group life insurance for the staff has already been approved, while personal accident insurance is also being worked out to cover the staff in the course of their duties.


However, the spokesman said the issue of allowances for Emergency Response Teams being canvassed by the workers has no basis of approval from the Salaries and Wages Commission.
