The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has started a two-day warning strike, and as its employees were being turned away from the Apapa port, a mob gathered outside.
After declining a meeting with the Federal Government due to the growing challenges and suffering across the nation brought on by the loss of gasoline subsidies, the NLC made the decision to go on strike.
The National Labor Congress (NLC) announced a two-day warning strike on Friday in protest of the pervasive suffering and poverty felt throughout the nation. The NLC also threatened a total and permanent shutdown of the economy within 14 working days or 21 days following the warning strike if the government did not take action to address the difficulties faced nationwide.
An enraged ports employee vented his anger over the federal government’s indifference to Nigerians’ suffering. He urged a total shutdown because he thinks the two-day strike won’t be enough.
The Apapa seaport’s other employees claimed to be unaware of the warning strike. “The media were not being factual with the information they sent to the public,” an unnamed source claimed. I initially heard about the strike, then I heard that it wouldn’t last. You are aware that the NLC has never been steady due to their conduct in contrast to Adams Oshiomole’s tenure as President of the Union. Many of us were unaware of the warning strike because we no longer believe their claims.
The gates to the Apapa harbor were all sealed, leaving many people trapped, according to Vanguard.
The Mile 2 road came to a standstill in the midst of these occurrences as passengers refused to be transported, causing delays in certain offices in the Apapa region.
