The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has announced that workers and labor unions have initiated countrywide demonstrations. The President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, made this announcement during a press conference at Unity Fountain in Abuja on Wednesday. Large groups of workers holding placards gathered on the streets of the FCT to participate in the protests. However, Ajaero mentioned that there have been some challenges in starting the protests in certain states.

He stated that,  “Protests have taken off in all states bearing some hindrances in some places. We are aware of the Police efforts to stop the process in some areas.

“To be candid with you, nothing is stopping the protest. Based on responses from state governments, it is equally our determination whether the protest will be for today, tomorrow or next, not by using force to stop the people from expressing their views. We are here for the protest, to make a statement to Nigerians,”he said.

On August 2, workers had made public their intentions to stage a nationwide protest, calling on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government to roll back the fuel price increases and other policies. On the following Wednesday, the protests were formally initiated in numerous locations, spanning Abuja, Ogun, Kano states, and various other areas throughout the country.
