NLC issues notice for August 2 nationwide strike


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to reverse policies perceived as detrimental to the poor, such as the recent hike in petrol prices. Failure to comply will result in an indefinite nationwide strike starting from August 2. 

The NLC has instructed its affiliates and state councils to mobilize workers, Nigerians, and civil society allies for widespread strikes and mass protests if the government does not meet their demands. This decision was made during the NLC's Central Working Committee meeting in Abuja on July 25.

In summary, the NLC has given the government a week to revoke its anti-poor policies, including the increase in petrol prices. If the demands are not met, the NLC will initiate an indefinite strike and mass protests from August 2. The NLC is also mobilizing support from workers and other Nigerians to join in the strike and protests.
