Strike: NLC Gives FG, CBN, 7-Day Ultimatum Over Cash, Petrol Scarcity 

0 minutes, 55 seconds Read

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has given the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to address the present cash and petrol scarcity, or face a nationwide strike.

NLC President, Joe Ajero, gave the ultimatum, following the central working committee meeting on Monday.

He lamented the hardships being endured by Nigerian workers, as a result of the federal government’s naira redesign policy and the ongoing fuel scarcity in the country, insisting the labour union has been pushed to the extreme.

His words, “The Congress wishes to inform the Federal Government that we will no longer keep quiet to this issue of perennial fuel scarcity and arbitrary increase on petroleum products.

“The NLC is giving the Federal Government of Nigeria, the agencies of government, including the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and other banking institutions seven working days to address the issue of the cash crunch.

“If they fail to do this at the expiration of the seven days, the union is directing all workers in the country to stay at home because it has become very difficult to access N1 to board vehicles to our workplace.”
