NLC vows to shut down airports, banks, others from Monday

The Deputy Vice President, Nigeria Labour Congress, Amaechi Asogwuni, has said that all sectors would be shut from Monday.

Asogwuni  who addressed a news conference on Sunday disclosed that airports, banks, and offices would not be allowed to function.

 “No airport will be in operation in Nigeria; banks are not expected to function, so no business owners should risk himself, for Nigerian workers have taken that decision”, NAN quoted him as saying.

“We are the workers and we are withdrawing our services; we have the right to do so because protests are our constitutional right. And I believe we will enforce it; schools shall remain closed until this action ends.”

The labour leader appealed to Nigerians to join the protest reminding them that it was part of their quota to democracy.

On the increase in petrol price, Asogwuni said the federal government should have engaged the organized labour and other stakeholders.

“The government did not do that at a time it ought to; it failed in its duty to engage labour before time. On the issue of electricity, the government had earlier had an interaction with labour in Kano and we discouraged it from proceeding.”
