NLC, TUC announce date for commencement of indefinite strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, of Nigeria have declared that there will be an indefinite strike starting from October 3.

This was disclosed at a press briefing held in Abuja on Tuesday, September 26.

The President of NLC, Joe Ajaero and the TUC, Festus Osifo, advised Nigerians to stockpile foodstuffs because the strike would shut down economic activities in the country.

The communique read by the two Presidents, also said the indefinite strike is as a result of the insensitivity of government to the plights of Nigerians as a result of the removal of petrol subsidy and continuous demonstration of unwillingness and complete lack of initiative to roll out palliatives.
