The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has concluded its two-day warning strike, directing all workers to resume work today.
The NLC warned that this strike is not the end of the struggle, but rather a prelude to a potential indefinite nationwide strike later in the month if the government doesn’t address its demands.
NLC President Comrade Joe Ajaero praised the success of the warning strike, stating it demonstrated the readiness of Nigerian workers to defend their rights and hold the government accountable. He urged members to prepare for an indefinite nationwide strike if the government fails to meet their demands.
The warning strike aimed to protest unmet agreements by the federal government on the consequences of fuel subsidy removal and other issues. While the strike has ended for now, the NLC’s resolve to pursue its demands remains steadfast.
The NLC’s actions highlight the ongoing challenges and tensions surrounding fuel subsidy removal and economic conditions in Nigeria.
