Labour Hints on Postponing Nationwide Protest

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) hinted at the possibility of postponing their planned nationwide protest, which was scheduled to begin on Wednesday, following President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s recent announcements.


What TUC and NLC is saying

TUC President, Festus Osifo, spoke to State House reporters after a rescheduled meeting of the Presidential Steering Committee on Palliatives held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He expressed that while President Tinubu’s measures were welcomed, they were not comprehensive enough to address all their concerns.
