According to a report by the Guardian newspaper, 65 civil society groups have decided to pull out of the planned protest organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

The groups made this decision on Sunday, February 25, due to concerns that the demonstration could be hijacked by unruly elements.

Some civil society organizations (CSOs) are opposed to the NLC’s strike against the current hardship in Nigeria.

They fear that if the protest is hijacked by hoodlums, it could further worsen the already difficult situation in the country.

The Coalition of Civil Society Organisations Forum, consisting of the 65 groups, expressed their apprehensions about the rally being taken over by criminal elements.

In a joint statement by the coordinator, Buba Mohammed, and secretary, George Phillips, the group announced that they would no longer participate in the demonstration.

They also mentioned that they are actively seeking to engage with the government to find a peaceful resolution to the issues at hand.

The NLC’s strike had been scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, and Wednesday, February 28, however, with the withdrawal of these civil society groups, the protest may not have the same level of participation as initially anticipated.
