The Nigerian Labour Congress has said that the response of the government will determine how long the ongoing protest by Nigerian workers will last.
Speaking to Channels TV at Unity Fountain in the FCT on Wednesday, August 1, NLC President Joe Ajaero warned the federal government against use of force.
“It’s in the interest of the NLC to determine based on the response of the state whether the protest should be for today, tomorrow, or next, or till thy kingdom come. It is not by using forces to stop people from expressing their views.”
The ongoing protest against alleged ‘anti-people’ policies instituted by the federal government is currently taking place at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna, Kano, Cross River, Ebonyi, Ogun, Imo, Ondo, and Edo, and other states of the federation.
