The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, declared a statewide strike beginning next Wednesday.

The union made the announcement during a meeting of its National Executive Council, NEC, in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja.


According to Channels TV, the meeting was not unrelated to President Bola Tinubu’s suspension of fuel subsidies and the ensuing increase in petrol pump prices.

The NEC is made up of all the Presidents, General Secretaries, and Treasurers of the NLC’s affiliate unions, as well as the State Chairpersons and Secretaries of the NLC State Councils, the Chairperson of the NLC Youth Committee, and members of the National Administrative Council (NAC).
