Civil society Organisation (CSO) under the umbrella of Conference of Minority Tribes in Nigeria alongside Nigeria Unemployed Youth Vanguard and 35 others in Nigeria have described the current nation-wide strike by factional Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) as epileptic.
Speaking at a conference on the state of the nation on Friday in Abuja, its National coordinator, comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, the group condemned in strong terms, the strike action by the factional NLC led by Waba, calling for immediate suspension of her actions or face the wrath of the ordinary Nigerians which he described as unpatriotic and offensive to Nigerians.
“The Nigeria Labour Congress genuinely is not protesting the subsidy but because of the faction in it, Waba is seeking for recognition that he may be know by Nigerians. We do not have to toll the part of cheap popularity to the detriment of our people,” the group said.
The group promised to mobilize a one million man solidarity march in Abuja and major cities in Nigeria in support of government decision that removed oil subsidy. [myad]
