Kwara state branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday ordered the workers and residents of the state to stay indoors as from this Wednesday despite the court order that restrained the national leadership of the NLC from embarking on strike over the alleged refusal of the federal government to reduce the petrol price to N86 per litre from N145 per litre.
This is contained in a press release issued by Joint Kwara Labour Congress comprising of the NLC and the TUC in the state.
According to the statement jointly signed by the chairmen of the two labour unions, Comrade Yekini Kareem Agunbiade of the NLC and Kolawole Olumoh Nasir of the TUC, “The Kwara State councils of the NLC/TUC in line with the directive of the national headquarters of the two umbrella unions will embark on strike if the federal government fails to accede to the demands on or before 12 midnight on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, the NLC/TUC and their civil societies allies will commence the strike on Wednesday, May,18, 2016”.
“We seriously urge every worker and the masses of Kwara state to remain indoors until further notice,” the statement concluded.
