The Nigeria Labour Congress in collaboration with the Trade Union Congress has declared a nationwide indefinite strike beginning from Tuesday, November 14.
The labour unions said the strike is as a result of the government’s lack of sensitivity regarding the recent brutalization of the National President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero,
This was made known at a press briefing on Monday in Abuja by the Trade Union Congress President, Engr. Festus Usifo, who said that the declaration of the strike was because government has failed to meet their demands regarding the manhandling of their boss.
According to him, part of the labour unions demand included that the those who brutalized the NLC President should be arrested and prosecuted, he particularly said that the Area Commander who led the action should be relieved of his job and prosecuted.
