Nigeria’s labor unions have started demonstrations around the country.

This was revealed by Joe Ajaero, the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Wednesday during an interview with Channels Television at Unity Fountain in Abuja, where workers had gathered to take to the streets.

He claimed that other states have obstacles preventing the protest from starting.

“Protests have begun in all states, despite some obstacles in some locations. We are aware of the police’s efforts in some regions to halt the process.

“I’ll be honest with you; nothing is putting an end to the protest. It is equally up to us to decide whether the demonstration will take place today, tomorrow, or the day after. We won’t do this by employing physical force to prevent people from expressing their opinions. We are here to demonstrate and to speak out for Nigerians, he said.

According to 460play, on August 2, employees declared a statewide strike in protest of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration’s policies over fuel price increases and other issues.

Workers were assembled for protests at Unity Fountain in Abuja, Ogun, and Kano states as of the time this news was filed.
