The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has kicked-off its nationwide strike in protest of the government’s increase of petrol price and electricity tariffs. The congress wants both tariffs reversed, and has vowed an indefinite strike from Wednesday until the government accedes to the demands.
Leaders of the NLC marched on Wednesday at about 9AM from Labour House in central district of Abuja to the federal secretariat, where the president of the congress, Aliyu Wabba, addressed workers.
A procession of unionists and workers, decked in t-shirts and displaying flags, is to move to the Berger Junction in Abuja, and will continue every day until the government rescinds its decision, Mr. Wabba said.
