The National Executive Council (NEC) of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has resolved to embark on a nationwide strike.

The resolution, contained in a general circular to all zonal councils and domestic committee unit was made available to our newsroom.

According to a circular signed by Móhamed I. Sheikh, the General Secretary of the Nigerian Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions Employees (NUBIFIE), the reason for the industrial action slated for Monday 28th September, 2020, is the hike in pump price of petrol (Premium Motor Spirit) and electricity tariff.

See general circular below.

Meanwhile, the Joint Action Front, a coalition of unions, political parties and the #RevolutionNow movement have announced plans to join the protest as well as the one slated for October 1, 2020 – the independence anniversary. The country will be celebrating 60 years since it gained independence from British rule on that day.
