Nigeria’s Labour Congress (NLC) has yesterday announced that they will embark on a one-day solidarity strike to show support for their counterparts, the academic staff union of the university, and others that have been on strike for the past few months.
The decision came after the union central committee meeting where they pointed out that the federal government is too slow in attending to the demands of the striking unions and, thus, wants to show their support for their fellow unions (ASUU, NASU, and NAAT).
In his speech given in Abuja after the executive council meeting, the president of the union, Ayuba Wabba, in his speech given in Abuja after the executive council meeting, gave an order to her affiliate unions to issue directives on the planned one-day solidarity strike in support of the ongoing strike between her fellow unions, which are:
Academic Staff Union of Universities; Non-Academic Staff Union; and National Association of Academic Technologies.
The president, Ayuba Wabba, said: “I think there is a reluctance to address this issue (of strike) and therefore, CWC has decided that there will be a one-day national protest to call the attention of the government to resolve the issue immediately.” After that, the next decision of the CWC will take place. “
