The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has praised Nigerian workers for observing the union’s two-day warning strike.
Last Friday, NLC President Joe Ajaero said that the labor union has decided to launch a two-day warning strike on September 5th.
The NLC chief said it was a protest of the union’s discontent with the hardship caused by the President Bola Tinubu-led government’s elimination of gasoline subsidies, as well as what it called the new administration’s terrible policies.
According to Gistlovers, while employees in some states, like Lagos and Sokoto, refused to comply with the NLC instruction of a two-day warning strike, activity were halted in others, including Kano, Ogun, and Abuja.
It was gathered that banks and government offices were closed down in Kano yesterday, which was the first day of the strike, while maritime workers had also shut down activities at the Apapa and Tin Can ports yesterday
Appreciating their compliance level, the NLC president took to X, formerly Twitter, to praise Nigerian workers.
He said the level of compliance on the first day of the strike showed that Nigerian workers can back their words with action.
While urging them to maintain the zeal for the second day of the strike, which is today, Ajaero said the union’s goal was achieved on the success recorded on the first day of the strike.
