NLC demonstrates in Lagos, Abuja, Jos, Ekiti, others

Despite the effect of factions in the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the labour body Wednesday, May 18, 2016 put paid to its threat to mobilise for industry action against the hike in petrol pump price from N85.50 to N145 by the Federal Government last week, reports ITRealms.

NLC also held its protest in the nation’s capital and Lagos among other cities in the country including Ekiti and Jos States.

In Lagos,ITRealms reports that after the briefing by labour leaders at the Labour House, members took to the street matching from Yaba to Ikeja via Ikorodu Road in Lagos.

Although along Ikorudu road, the protesting NLC team encountered security agencies, but the exercise continued causing lots of traffic.

ITRealms recalls that the four-day ultimatum NLC gave to the Federal Government expired on Tuesday midnight, with a court in Abuja constrained NLC from carrying out its warning.

NLC and its affiliates in a letter dated May 13, 2016 and addressed to all the state presidents, secretaries of labour unions, directed members to sensitise all their colleagues towards embarking on indefinite strike cum mass protest action slated to commence on Wednesday 18, May 2016 across the country till further notice.

NLC, therefore advised member unions including the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, to liaise with the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress in their states for further arrangements concerning the protest and give this directive a widest publicity it deserves.
ITRealms recalls that the Nigerian government last week proclaimed a new price of 145 Naira per litre of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise call fuel, on May 11, which has so far been rejected by the labour force in the country.
