NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has insisted that it will go ahead with the planned strike scheduled for Monday, September 28, 2020.

Organized labour had fixed Monday to protest the recent increase in electricity tariff and petrol price.

The federal government through the office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) had obtained a court order from the National Industrial Court to stop the strike.

But in a communique by its General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja, the NLC asked its members across the nation to come out in large numbers to protest the increase in fuel and electricity prices.

The NLC asked all National Leadership of affiliates in Abuja to mobile at least 2000 of their members to Unity Fountain, Abuja for the mass rally which takes off at 7 am.

Also, affiliates are 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.

The NLC Secretary also noted that all Presidents and General Secretaries are expected to lead and identify with their members at the take-off point.
