No retreating from the intended countrywide strike – NLC: The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has debunked speculations that it might back down on its proposed industrial action slated nationwide for Wednesday.
The Federal Government and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation Limited NNPCL accomplished the necessary by restoring the status quo on the elimination of gasoline subsidies, according to the statement, and only then would it shelve the strike.

The workers’ bodies were responding to a Sunday article in a major newspaper.
It referred to the study as an absurd and desperate effort by adversaries of the people to divide the Nigeria Labour Congress along racial or regional lines on a topic that affects the whole country.
Upah asserts that while Nigeria Labour Congress is still the largest pan-Nigerian organisation unified by the same vision, goal, and shared national values, “this scenario only exists in their imagination.”
“With regard to the impending strike, we want to reassure you that all of the affiliate unions of the Congress will stand solidly behind one another on Wednesday and pursue legal action if the NNPC and government fail to take the necessary action.
“While primal emotions like religion, region, or nationality may be a haven for some, they have no place in the Nigeria Labour Congress. What matters to us are problems like the thoughtless and illegal rise in the price of PMs at the pump, which will fall disproportionately on Nigeria’s already poor communities.

There is no justification for the North or South-West to call off the strike, according to NLC, because the burden of the evil policies will not fall solely on those sections of the nation.
