Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the federal government, demanding the reversal of what they perceive as anti-people policies.

If their demands are not met, the NLC plans to initiate an indefinite nationwide strike starting on August 2, 2023.

In preparation for this, the NLC has instructed its affiliates and state councils to mobilize workers and other Nigerians, along with civil society allies, for mass protests and a sustained strike.

This is not the first time the NLC has threatened strike action against the government, as a similar situation occurred in June.

The announcement has sparked various reactions from Nigerians on social media, with some expressing skepticism towards the NLC’s leadership and others criticizing the effectiveness of previous strikes.

@nossky wrote on Twitter: “Many don’t trust NLC leaders, but they too are under huge pressure from rank & file workers. This can be the break the protest movt against Tinubu’s insane anti-people programs needs, if workers and youth keep up the pressure just like they did in 2012 general strike.”

@Obinna44 said: “Useless NLC, give them small bribe behold the strike is suspended.”

@igada commented: “Lol. Give them ultimatum, reachout to them and advice them to get a court order restraining you from going on strike, FG takes your advice, files motion and gets an experte order, then NLC will fold, claiming that it respected an order of court. Wash, rinse and repeat.”
