Strike threat: You’re not the only voice of Nigerians – Tinubu throws jab at Labour

President Bola Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu on Thursday urged the organised labour to make peace, saying it was unfair calling for strikes within just nine months of his administration.

The president said this at the inauguration of the red line rail in Lagos, where he reiterated his commitment to deliver good governance to Nigerians.

Tinubu, throwing the jab at labour, said that no matter how much they laid claim to their freedom and their rights, calling strikes within nine months of an administration was “unacceptable”.

“If you want to participate in the electoral process, wait until 2027; if not, then make peace. You are not the only voice of Nigerians,” he said.

Tinubu assured Nigerians that the country would be out of the woods, with perseverance and hard work.

Tinubu’s jab came days after the NLC staged a protest rally over the high cost of living in the country.

It planned the protest for two days, but suspended it after the first day.

The NLC is also threatening to call a strike later if the government fails to address its grievances.(NAN)
