Transporters in Lagos won’t join NLC protest – MC Oluomo

Must read

The Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, has said transport operators will not join the protest by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC.

According to MC Oluomo, the Lagos State government has produced a conducive environment for them to operate, hence there is no need to be part of any protest.

A statement by MC Oluomo reads partly: “After much deliberations and review, we discussed the high cost of food, transport fares and other areas of public interest, in particular, the plan by the organised Labour union i.e. the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to call workers out on a strike action.

“After a careful discussion, we concluded that we will not be part of any strike or protest rally being planned to draw the Federal Government’s attention to the issue being debated in the country.

“Lagos State Government has provided a conducive atmosphere for our operations. There is, therefore, no reason for us to join any strike that may threaten the peace of the State.

“We at Lagos State Parks and Garages, therefore, equivocally say no to any form of strike and protest by any group or organized labour.

Recall that despite series of intervention on the need to shelve the protest, the NLC has insisted it would embark on a nationwide protest, today, Wednesday, over the hike in the pump price of fuel.
