NLC STRIKE UPDATE: Dr. Obafemi Hamzat – Deputy Governor of Lagos State is seen in the video below, addressing angry protesters in Ikeja moments ago as captured by an eyewitness reporting for ENigeria Newspaper.

This newspaper earlier reported that Ikeja, Allen Axis were blocked, as RRS Officers Take over the Place at the ongoing protest organized by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

The NLC mobilized protesters across the country who are seen carrying placards with inscriptions like “Tinubu Listen to Nigerians not IMF, not World Bank, let the poor breath” etc.

In Lagos, the protesters converged at the Ikeja under-bridge in Lagos, hence causing heavy traffic in the environs mentioned above.
Last Wednesday, NLC issued a seven-day ultimatum to the federal government to reverse all “anti-poor” and “insensitive” policies.

The union also called on civil society organizations (CSOs) and its councils across the states to join in the August 2 nationwide strike to protest the soaring cost of living in the country.

Efforts by the federal government to halt the planned strike and protest failed.

Meanwhile in a strong warning issued by the Acting Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun on Tuesday afternoon, he noted that there would be no room for violent protest.

ENigeria Newspaper eye reporter who is on the ground says there is a heavy presence of men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) who are patrolling and ensuring peace and order are maintained. For More NLC strike updates, please bookmark ENigeria Newspaper on your browser.
