The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has given the Tinubu-led Federal Government seven days to reverse all perceived anti-poor policies including the recent hike in the pump price of petrol.

The union said it will commence an indefinite nationwide strike from August 2, 2023.

“Consequently, the NLC has directed all its affiliates and state councils to immediately begin mobilisation of workers and other Nigerians, including civil society allies, for a long-lasting strike and mass protests should the government fail to meet its demands,” a Vanguard report has claimed.

According to the report, this was part of the decisions reached at the NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House.
