Former lawmaker, Shehu Sani has commended aviation workers for embarking on an industrial action.
According to Sani, the federal government should address the demands of the workers.
Sani said this in a post via his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday.
Recall that the Nigerian aviation workers commenced a two-day warning strike with a protest at the Lagos airport on Monday.
The unions include the National Union of Air Transport Employees, the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals, the Amalgamated Union of Public Corporation Civil Service Technical and Recreation Services Employees and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers.
However, Sani said the government should look into their demands, noting that they work in a very sensitive sector.
He wrote, “The two days strike embarked upon by the aviation workers is commendable.
“The government should address their demands. They work in a very sensitive sector where the safety of human lives is paramount. But I don’t understand why they are opposed to the demolition of their old offices.”
