Disregard Reports Of An Indefinite Strike, It Is Not True – NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has debunked reports making the rounds that it has embarked on an indefinite nationwide strike.

Online reports indicated that the union commenced its planned strike on Friday after its ultimatum to the federal government elapsed on Thursday.

DAILY POST reports that organised labour had threatened to shut down the country’s economy to protest against the government’s failure to meet its demands.

The union is asking the Federal Government to provide adequate palliatives that would cushion the effects of the removal of fuel subsidy.

NLC previously embarked on a two-day warning strike on September 5 and 6, during which it issued a 14-day ultimatum.

Government’s efforts to quell the move for an indefinite strike have not yielded any fruit, as the union still insists that it would shut down the economy if its demands were not met.
