The Nigeria Labour Congress has insisted on going ahead with its planned mass action scheduled for Monday September 28, despite a fresh court order obtained by the Federal Government on Friday September 25, barring them and the Trade Union Congress from embarking on their planned strike.
The organized labour’s General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja in a communique addressed to its members told them to come out in large numbers to protest against the increased fuel price and electricity tarrif.
All National Leadership of affiliates in Abuja were directed to mobile at least 2000 of their members to Unity Fountain, Abuja for the mass rally which takes off at 7am.
Affiliates are also expected to mobilise the same number of members to the NLC Sub-Secretariat, 29, Olajuwon Street, Yaba, Lagos, which is the take-off point for the Lagos action at 7am also.
It is also expected that all Presidents and General Secretaries will lead and identify with their members at the take-off point.
