The President of Nigeria Labour Congress-NLC, Joe Ajaero, has urged workers and Nigerians to discountenance some online reports that today’s mass protest has been called off.
His comment comes after NLC held its rescheduled meeting with Steering Committee on palliatives at the presidential villa in Abuja.
Recall that the organized labour had on Monday insisted on going ahead with its planned protest over the removal of petroleum subsidy. NLC had openly expressed doubts about President Bola Tinubu’s ability to control inflation and gasoline prices due to the unification of the exchange rate.
Speaking to correspondents, Ajaero said the plan for workers to proceed on a peaceful protest from today has not changed. He dismissed fears that the peaceful protest could be hijacked by hoodlums, saying that such had never happened in the history of workers protest.
