“As an affiliate of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), our members will participate in the strike action and mass protests as directed by Congress,”

“It, therefore, mandated its branch union executives to enforce the strike directive while soliciting for full co-operation and understanding on the part of the textile employers.

 

“To this end, the union calls on the Federal government led by President Muhammdu Buhari to listen to the voices of Nigerians and reverse the increase in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff given the hardship they imposed on the already impoverished masses of Nigeria.”
