The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has ended the 2-days warning strike on Wednesday, 6th September, 2023.
The two-day nationwide warning strike was aimed at drawing the Federal Government’s attention toward the hardship Nigerian workers are subjected to by the removal of fuel subsidy among other payments by President Bola Tinubu.
The 2-day warning organised by the NLC enjoyed widespread compliance as economic and commercial activities were knocked down in several states of the Federation on Tuesday and Wednesday 2023.
The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, on Wednesday, 6th September, 2023, stated that the significant stride was achieved during the industrial action.
We are pleased to report that, thanks to your resolute commitment, we have made significant strides in achieving the goals set during our National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which prompted the initiation of this warning strike,” the NLC president said.Joe Ajaero, NLC President
It is abundantly clear that our united message has resonated loudly with the government, and it would take a truly inattentive ear not to hear it.
As we mark the end of the two-day nationwide warning strike today, at the stroke of midnight, we earnestly call upon you all to gracefully conclude the strike and return to work tomorrow, in accordance with our initial agreement.
The NLC President commended Nigerian workers for participating in the 2-days warning strike and encouraged them to return to their place of duties from Thursday, 7th September, 2023.
