Subsidy Removal: No going back on nationwide strike – NLC
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has insisted that the federal government's failure to address the problems brought on by the elimination of fuel subsidies is the reason for the planned two-day warning strike.
This information was provided in an interview with the Daily Post on Monday by the State NLC Chairman, Comrade Gabriel Amari.
The federal government is being accused by the labor union of giving up on the negotiations and not carrying out some of the decisions made during earlier meetings with the government.
On August 2, organized labor demonstrated against what it deemed to be President Bola Tinubu's "anti-people" policies.
Amari said Nigerian workers have been facing untold hardship since the fuel subsidy removal by the federal government.
The labor leader averred that all offices, including institutions, will be shut down and the nation’s economy will be crippled due to the federal government’s failure to listen to the cries of the masses.
He admonished workers in the state to adhere strictly to the labor directive as they remain committed to fighting for the rights of Nigerian workers.
“Workers in Kogi State are fully ready for tomorrow’s warning strike as directed by our national secretariat. There is no going back until the federal government does the needful concerning fuel subsidy removal.
“There is massive suffering in the land. This is why we are embarking on this two-day warning strike to press home our demands.
“If the government fails to listen to the cry of Nigerian workers, we might be forced to down tools indefinitely,” he stated.
