NLC asked FG to reverse policies or face nationwide strike August 2

The Nigerian Labour Congress(NLC), has asked the federal government to reverse all of its economic policies that have brought untold hardship to populace or face an indefinite nationwide strike from August 2..

NLC took the decision at it’s Central Working Committee (CWC), meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Labour House, Abuja.

The umbrella workers body said that federal government policies have stifled the poor, making them poorer, downfounded and helpless.

It said that the Federal government risked an indefinite nationwide strike if the policies were not reviewed before August 2, 2023.

NLC has fixed August 2 for the commencement of the strike if their demands remained unsettled.

These policies include the recent hike in the pump price of petrol.

This is as NLC directed all its affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilization of workers and other Nigerians, including civil society allies, for a long-lasting strike and mass protests should the government fail to meet its demands.
