The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has given the Federal Government under the watch of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu a seven-day ultimatum to reverse all perceived anti-poor policies including the recent hike in the pump price of petrol or face an indefinite nationwide strike from August 2, 2023.

“Consequently, the NLC has directed all its affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilisation of workers and other Nigerians, including civil society allies, for a long-lasting strike and mass protests should the government fail to meet its demands,” says a report published this Wednesday morning, July 26.

This was one of the decisions reached at NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House.
