LABOUR TO HOLD NATIONWIDE PROTEST OVER ASUU STRIKE, INSECURITY

The organised labour movement has threatened to hold a one-day nationwide protest to call the attention of the government to the country’s security challenges, the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the unending energy crisis.

The president of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr Ayuba Wabba and the President of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Mr Ambali Olatunji made this known at two different conferences in Abuja.

Wabba expressed sadness over the continued closure of the country’s tertiary institutions due to unresolved labour disputes between the Federal Government and unions in the sector.

He recalled that in the last decision, Congress went to the extent of writing to President Muhammadu Buhari and gave a 21-day notice for them to converge a very high-powered meeting.

According to the NLC president, there was reluctance by the Federal Government in addressing the issues.

He said, “Therefore, Central Working Committee has decided that there will be a one-day national protest.

“This is to call the attention of the government to resolve the issue immediately.

“We have also asked all our affiliates by the next one week to issue statements”.

It was also reported that after the protest rally if the government failed to resolve the crisis, the NLC would embark on a three-day warning strike that would also culminate in a total strike.
