The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its 52 affiliate unions across the country yesterday threatened to hold a two-day nationwide warning strike on Tuesday, September 5 and Wednesday, September 6, to “fight against hardship in the country.”
An indefinite shutdown of the nation could follow if the Federal Government fails to address the “excruciating mass suffering” being faced by Nigerians, NLC President Joe Ajaero told reporters at the end of the National Executive Council meeting of the Congress in Abuja.
Ajaero accused the government of “deliberate neglect and disregard to engage the relevant stakeholders through the channel of social dialogue.”
The Federal Government, according to him, has “refused to engage and reach an agreement with the organized labour on critical issues on the consequences of the unfortunate hike in prices of Petroleum which has unleashed massive suffering on Nigerian workers and masses.”
