NLC Suspends Planned Nationwide Strike Over Naira Scarcity
NLC has suspended the planned Nationwide Strike over Naira Scarcity.
Newsone reports that Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has suspended its strike scheduled to commence tomorrow, Wednesday, March 29, 2023, over Naira scarcity rocking the country.
This online news platform understands that the suspension of the nationwide strike over naira scarcity was made known today at the end of its National Executive Council meeting.
Newsone Nigeria recalls that the pressure group earlier disclosed that it would begin an indefinite strike from tomorrow, (Wednesday), adding that it would picket branches of the Central Bank of Nigeria across the country.
However, the group gave CBN additional two weeks to ensure Naira notes circulate across the country.
Newsone had reported last week that the NLC had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to end the petrol and cash scarcity being experienced in the country.
Joe Ajaero, the national president of the union, said the decision to picket the CBN branches became necessary as the federal government and the CBN had failed to show any commitment to addressing the situation.
