After the first day of strike read what NLC plans to do next

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), that has commenced a strike over hike in fuel price on May 18, Wednesday, has praised its members for turning out “encase”.

Premium Times reports that the union commended those who supported the strike, for taking action “in spite of teething challenges”.

It said: “We salute their courage, patriotism and sacrifice in the face of overwhelming acts of threats and treachery.”

“Thus, in pursuance of the mandate given by the NEC of the Congress in conjunction with our Civil Society allies, the protest continues tomorrow.

“Accordingly, we urge you to mobilise your members, friends or colleagues for the continuation of the protest tomorrow.

“You are requested to assemble at Berger Roundabout tomorrow at 7 a.m.

“For those who are yet to join the strike action, we similarly urge you to muster the necessary courage to be part of this historic struggle in defence of yourself, the weak and the vulnerable.

In the statement signed by Peter Ozo-Eson, NLC’s secretary general, the union added: “No level of comfort today or primordial sentiments should blind us to the cruel realities of the increase in the pump price of the petroleum products as what we are seeing is just the beginning.”

The action had little effect on normal daily activities in several states on May 18. However, full compliance was recorded only in a several states.

The congress members were protesting over the increase of fuel price by the government of President Buhari.

The National Industrial Court had ordered that the strike should not go ahead because of the risk of civil disorder.

In 2012, the previous government of Goodluck Jonathan was made to back down from a similar price hike after nationwide protests.

Despite being one of Africa’s largest oil producers, the country has to import fuel to meet demand as its refineries are neglected and work at a fraction of their capacity.
