NLC Says Proposed Nationwide Strike Won’t Be Abandoned


The intended statewide strike scheduled for Wednesday has been abandoned, according to the Nigeria Labour Congress, or NLC.

The Federal Government and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation Limited NNPCL accomplished the necessary by restoring the status quo on the elimination of gasoline subsidies, according to the statement, and only then would it shelve the strike.

Benson Upah, Head of Information and Public Affairs for NLC, announced the job in a statement on Sunday.

The workers’ bodies were responding to a Sunday article in a major newspaper.

It referred to the study as an absurd and desperate effort by adversaries of the people to divide the Nigeria Labour Congress along racial or regional lines on a topic that affects the entire country.

As said by Upah,

As long as Nigeria Labour Congress is the largest pan-Nigerian organization unified by a common vision, mission, and shared national values, this scenario only exists in their imaginations.

“With regard to the impending strike, we want to reassure you that all of the affiliate unions of the Congress will stand solidly behind one another on Wednesday and pursue legal action if the NNPC and government fail to take the necessary action.

“While primal emotions like religion, region, or nationality may be a haven for some, they have no place at the Nigeria Labour Congress. What matters to us are issues like the thoughtless and criminal increase in the price of PMs at the pump, which will fall disproportionately on Nigeria’s already poor communities.

There is no justification for the North or South-West to call off the strike, according to NLC, because the burden of the evil policies will not fall solely on those sections of the nation.

Remember that on May 29, 2023, President Bola Tinubu stated that the age of petroleum product subsidies was over. This occurrence had a significant impact on Nigerian politics.
