The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has declared a two-day nationwide warning strike set to take place on September 5th and 6th, with an ultimatum for the Federal Government to address the dire plight of the masses.
This announcement was made by NLC President Joe Ajaero during a press conference held at the conclusion of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Friday in Abuja.
Ajaero, while delivering the communiqué jointly signed by Mr. Emmanuel Ugboaja, General Secretary of the Congress, emphasized that these decisions were the result of extensive deliberations within the NEC.
The NLC has put the government on notice, stating that if no action is taken, a total and indefinite shutdown of the nation may occur within the next 14 to 21 working days.
The primary objective of this strike action, Ajaero stated, is to compel the government to address the excruciating mass suffering and impoverishment experienced across the country.
