Tinubu’s Govt Warns NLC Over Planned Protest

By Glam & Essence


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has been issued another warning by the federal government on Sunday, telling them not to carry out its planned two-day nationwide protest against the rising cost of living in the country.
The warning was relayed by the Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Mr Bayo Onanuga.
He pointed out the fed. govt is concerned that the procession might be hijacked, thus, worsening the deteriorating situation they are protesting about.
The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, had insisted that the protest would be held on Tuesday and Wednesday as planned.
This is as a result of the government’s failure to implement agreements allegedly reached between both parties on October 2, 2023, following the removal of the fuel subsidy.
The decision followed the conclusion of a 14-day ultimatum issued to the Federal Government to implement measures against the widespread hardship.
Onanuga has described their decision as a “breach of the law” and an “illegal undertaking’, saying, “The attorney-general has written the NLC’s lawyer that the protest is illegal. So, they are breaching a court order if they want to go on with the protest.”
