Mother of all strikes: NLC dares FG, says no going back

NLC moves against National Assembly plans to tinker minimum wage


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has dared the Federal Government on the Monday’s nationwide protest over failure to reverse the arbitrary fuel and electricity price hikes.

NLC decision came against a fresh court order obtained by the Federal Government on Friday September 25, barring them and the Trade Union Congress from embarking on their planned strike.

The Labour unions had earlier resolved on going ahead with its planned mass action scheduled for Monday September 28, after their negotiation with the government failed to yield any fruits.

General Secretary of the organized labour, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja in a communique addressed to its members directed them to come out in large numbers to protest against the increased fuel price and electricity tariff.

All National Leadership of affiliates in Abuja were directed to mobilise a minimum of 2000 of their members to Unity Fountain, Abuja for the mass rally which takes off at 7am.

Affiliates are also expected to mobilise the same number of members to the NLC Sub-Secretariat, 29, Olajuwon Street, Yaba, Lagos, which is the take-off point for the Lagos action at 7am also.

All national Presidents and General Secretaries are expected to lead and identify with their members at the take-off point.
