Protest: Another 3-days Strike If FG Doesn’t Bulge – NLC


Following the Nigerian Labour Congress NLC nationwide protest in solidarity with the striking ASUU members, the Labour Union have reportedly told the Federal Government to prepare for another 3-day nationwide strike if no action is taken.

 This was made known on Tuesday by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba,  on Channels TV.

According to him, “The protest first is to show our concern and to also call for urgent action to resolve the issues. We took two levels of decision.”

He noted, “First is the national protest to call for attention and for the issues to be resolved promptly, and the next level is three days national warning strike if nothing has happened after the protest to show our grievances.”

 Commenting on the protest, Wabba said, “These are democratic norms everywhere around the law. It is within the provisions of our law; it is backed by UN Charter for Human and People’s Rights, African Charter for Human and People’s Rights.”

He disclosed, “It is there in our constitution – Section 39/40, and even the courts have pronounced that you don’t require any permission; so it is legal, it is within your fundamental rights to protest.”
