– By Funke Olayiwola, ABH PRESS
The Nigeria Labour Union has remained dogged on its threat to go on a Nationwide strike over the increase of the National minimum wage.
The leaders of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Trader Union Congress and the United Labour Congress with their members marched from their NLC office at DLine to the Rivers state Government House to register their protest.
The National Vice President of the United Labour Congress, Igwe Achese speaking at the gate of the government house in Port Harcourt said they were at the government House to pass their protest message to Governor Nyesom Wike.
“The only thing that can abort this strike is if they agree to our terms. Until that is done, there is no going back. Our message is for Nigerians to begin to stockpile their homes with foodstuff because this strike, when it begins, it will not end until the Government meet our demands,”Achese said.
Also speaking, the chairman of the River state council of the NLC, Beatrice Itubo reiterated that the economy of the country will be shut down on November 6 if their demands were not met.
Nigerians are advised to stock their homes and get their daily essentials before the strike commences fully.
