JUST IN: NLC begins nationwide protest

The Nigeria Labour Congress on Wednesday issued a two-week ultimatum to the Federal Government to reverse the hikes in electricity tariff and the fuel pump price.

Naija News reports that this was made known after the meeting of the Central Working Committee of the NLC.

According to the NLC, if the federal government refuses to reverse the hike labour would embark on civil unrest nationwide.

In a communiqué read by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, the union said the ultimatum takes immediate effect, warning that it would mobilize its members nationwide for protest after September 28.
