NLC Threatens Nationwide Strike August 14 Over Lawsuit

The Nigeria Labour Congress has issued a warning that a nationwide strike will commence on August 14, 2023, unless the Federal Ministry of Justice withdraws the lawsuit that has been filed against organized labor.

In a statement released on August 3 by NLC president, Joe Ajaero, says the NLC made the decision during its National Executive Council meeting which was held in Abuja today. Ajaero said the Ministry of Justice and National Industrial Court have continued to allow themselves to be used as agents of  “anti-democracy.”.

The organization confirmed that it had agreed to halt protests after meeting with the President. However, if the government does not drop the lawsuit against the organization, it will begin a nationwide strike on August 14, 2023.

Highlighting the decisions of the NEC, Ajaero said the NEC resolved.

“To support and affirm the decision to suspend further protest on the nationwide mass protest; to commit to maintaining the required vigilance needed to hold government accountable on its assurances and governance in general; To commit to the terminal date of August 19, 2023, within which the issues around the Petroleum price hike will be agreed given the assurances of the President and the National Assembly.

To go on total strike across the country any day labor leaders are summoned to court by the government through the NICN. To demand the immediate withdrawal of this litigious terrorism by the Federal Ministry of Justice before the end of work Friday, the 11th of August, 2023.

To embark on a nationwide comprehensive strike beginning Monday, 14th of August, 2023 if this contemptuous court summons is not withdrawn by whosoever initiated it.”
