The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Friday, directed its members and affiliate unions to begin mobilisation for a two-day national protest expected to take place on February 27 and 28 if the federal government failed to implement all the agreements signed with it in October 2023.

The two-day national protest will take place at the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum it had earlier issued.

President of the NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero, who addressed newsmen at the end of the union’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja, asked his members to be on standby for an indefinite strike, which would commence seven days after the nationwide protest if the government still fails to meet its demands.

Ajaero, who noted that Labour was no longer interested in empty talks from the government but in actions, urged the government to immediately implement the agreement and restore faith in the democratic process as Nigerians were struggling to survive.
