Indefinite strike: Shehu Sani backs NLC, TUC


A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has in his own opinion justified the strike action by the organised labour over the brutalisation of the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Joe Ajaero.

Following the physical assault on Ajaero a few days ago by suspected political thugs in Owerri, the Imo State capital, the NLC and the Trade Union of Nigeria, TUC, had on Monday declared an indefinite nationwide strike to protest the incident.

Reacting to the development in a post on his official X handle, Shehu Sani supported the decision of the organised labour, saying the strike action would send clear messages to those behind the attack on its president.

According to him, the strike action will convey a clear message to those responsible for the attack on Ajaero.

His post reads, “No responsible trade union will fold its arms and see its leaders brutalised without a massive response.

“The strike action will send a clear message to those who want to toe this path. Using political thugs to disrupt protests and maltreat protesters is unacceptable; Abuja EndSARS organisers can remember how they were attacked at CBN Headquarters.”
