NLC Nationwide Protests Aborts After Day One

With relative turnouts on Tuesday, 27 February 2024 for its nationwide protests regarding economic pains in the country, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), last night, suspended further street protests, earlier scheduled to continue today. Furthermore, the National Labour Congress (NLC) president, Joe Ajaero, has urged the Federal Government to urgently address hunger and economic hardship in the country.

Notably, state-by-state situation reports of rallies witnessed good turnouts overall although in some states, the impact was little felt or none. In a communique at the end of a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of NLC held in Abuja, yesterday, the congress said after reviewing the first day of the protest, it decided to suspend street action for the second day of the protest. This, it claimed, followed the success recorded on day one, and by extension, attained the key objectives of the second-day protest on the first day. The communique signed by Ajaero and the acting general secretary, Comrade Ismail Bello, expressed appreciation to the Nigerian workers and masses for sending a strong message to the powers that be on their united resolve to demand accountability from them.
