The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) may shift the 2022 Workers Day Rally till May 2. This will happen only if the Ramadan Sallah is holding on May 1 by the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs of Nigeria.

NLC said it has resolved to consider that option due to the peculiar nature of Sallah festival to avoid clashes of celebrations.

The position of the Congress was contained in a circular sent to all Chairpersons of the Councils across the country.

Signed by its General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja, the circular reads: “At the meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of Congress held April 27, 2022, members of the CWC considered and deliberated on the high possibility of the Eid-El-Fitr Sallah falling on May 1, 2022.

“Taking into consideration the possibility of the situation, CWC arrived at the decision to closely monitor the announcement of Sallah on Saturday evening/night.

“If it is announced that Sallah will be on Sunday, the May Day Celebration will be moved to Monday 2nd May 2022 but if otherwise and Sallah does not fall on Sunday, the May Day Celebration will take place on Sunday, May 1st, 2022.

“We, therefore, urge all state councils to abide by the decision of the CWC and pay close attention to the various NLC platforms and WhatsApp groups.

“Please also note that the Secretariat will be on duty on Saturday, 30th April 2022 till midnight and can be contacted for further information,” the circular said.
