Nationwide Strike: NLC Warns Nigerians To Stockpile Their Homes With Foodstuff Ahead Of November 6
The Nigerian Labour union has warned that it will not renege on its threat to embark on a nationwide strike on November 6 to protest over the National minimum wage.
The leaders of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Trader Union Congress and the United Labour Congress together with their members marched from their NLC office at DLine to the Rivers state Government to register their protest.
Speaking at the gate of the government house in Port Harcourt, National Vice President of the United Labour Congress, Igwe Achese said they had come to the government House to pass their protest message to Governor Nyesom Wike.
“The only thing that can abort this strike is if they agree to our terms. Until that is done, there is no going back. Our message is for Nigerians to begin to stockpile their homes with foodstuff because this strike, when it begins, it will not end until the Government meet our demands,” Achese said.
Also speaking, the chairman of the River state council of the NLC, Beatrice Itubo reiterated that the economy of the country will be at a stand still from November 6 if their demands were not met
