THE Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) will hold “a mega rally” today 15th of June, 2016 in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, to drive home workers’ demands.
Its National Deputy President, Kiri Mohammed Shuaibu, said this yesterday while addressing the union’s members at the NLC Secretariat in Ibadan. The workers embarked on an indefinite strike a week ago to demand the immediate withdrawal of “trump-up charges” levelled against some incarcerated labour leaders and to force the state government to rescind its decision to sell public schools, among others.
The union leader, who vowed that no amount of intimidation from the government would make them to call off the strike without getting their demands, urged workers to assemble at the secretariat by 7:30am today.
