The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has released statement after its first day of strike and has stated its demands.
Here is the official statement released by NLC after the first day of the strike 14-11-2023;
NIGERIA LABOUR CONGRESS
MOTTO: LABOUR CREATES WEALTH
TO ALL AFFILIATES & STATE COUNCILS.
INDEFINITE NATIONWIDE STRIKE: A GREAT BEGINNING
We wish to appreciate and congratulate all Affiliates and State Councils for the great work in complying with the directive of the National Executive Council (NEC) resolution to begin a nationwide strike today.
Congress salutes your resoluteness and determination in ensuring that all of our workplaces were that down completely and workers stayed at home. The solidarity and singlemindedness in delivering on our resolutions has put a lie to those who wants to see a contrary outcome and have thoroughly made a resounding statement around the nooks and crannies of our nation.
Our assessment showed more than expected compliance in today’s outing despite being the first day of action. Gaps that were expected on the first day were surprisingly not that very visible. Just like an Aeroplane taking off will experience a little bit of drag in lifting off the tarmac, ours today was a smooth and cleaner take off. We doff our hats for you all and congratulate you for your doggedness.
You surpassed our expectations than we urge you to gird your loins and make it more compelling tomorrow until the Government meets our demands. Continue the mobilisation and let the success continue!
We remain committed to greater success in this action which can only happen with our collective efforts and determination to free our members in Imo state and ensure that the Government is held accountable for its use of violent abduction and brutality as a tool in workplace engagement.
Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja Esq. mni General Secretary
