The National Association of Nurses and Midwives has announced its intention to join in the proposed nationwide strike. This decision was communicated through an indefinite nationwide strike notice signed by several key members, including Secretary T. A. Shettima, National President Nnachi Michael Ekuma, and Deputy National President Shehu Abubakar, among others.
The notice referenced the Federal Government’s removal of fuel subsidy during President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s inauguration in May 2023, which had led to significant hardships for Nigerian workers and the less privileged.
The letter also mentioned that the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had made various requests to alleviate the suffering of Nigerian workers, but these appeals had gone unanswered. Despite multiple actions taken by the NLC, such as mass street protests, three-day warning strikes, and several ultimatums, the Federal Government had not responded to their concerns.
As a result, the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress convened on September 26, 2023, and resolved to initiate an indefinite strike action. Consequently, the notice conveyed the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to commence a nationwide indefinite industrial action starting from Tuesday, October 3rd.
