Nationwide protests by NLC, TUC will hold September 28


The nationwide protests by the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) earlier scheduled for September 23 has been moved to September 28.

This was disclosed by the TUC Chairman in Lagos State, Gbenga Ekundayo, when he spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.

Ekundayo  stated that the postponement was for a unified protest with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

The union leader said the federal government and organized labour were yet to reach an agreement on the new prices of electricity and petrol.

“TUC’s ultimatum ended today, NLC’s ultimatum will end on September 28. Those are two ultimatums, and the labour movement should not work that way. We have to harmonize our moves together.

“At the national level, it was agreed that we collapse together, instead of starting something now and another joining. It was agreed that we all wait till September 28,” he said.
