“Amidst heavy security measures, the Ikeja under-bridge in Lagos saw the commencement of nationwide protests by members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in response to the removal of petrol subsidy.
Earlier, the organized labor expressed dissatisfaction with the palliatives presented by the President during his nationwide broadcast on Monday night, deeming them insufficient to alleviate the country’s hardships.
Notably, the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero, was conspicuously absent from the meeting.
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) remained resolute in its decision to proceed with the scheduled national protest on Wednesday.
Following a meeting of the Presidential Steering Committee on Palliatives held at the State House, Abuja, Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief of Staff to the President, appealed to the organized labor to suspend the planned protest. He emphasized that the President’s interventions, as outlined in his Monday broadcast, were only preliminary, and ongoing discussions would continue to address the situation.”
