The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has asked workers across Nigeria to embark on a nationwide industrial action in protest against naira scarcity across the country from March 29.
The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, today, March 22, directed all affiliate unions of the Nigeria Labour Congress to use the protest to picket all branches of the Central Bank of Nigeria( CBN) across the country.
“Last week, we gave an ultimatum for the review of the cash crunch bedeviling the country, but we have discovered to our dismay that as at this moment, not much effort has been made to ameliorate the situation; the government is still foot dragging on these issues we raised.
“Based on this, we met again this morning to review our position and resolved that by Wednesday next week, all CBN branches will be picketed.
“Workers are directed to stay at home too because people cannot eat, workers can no longer go to the office, we have been pushed to the wall, we have decided to take our destiny in our hands, we have mobilised our workers for this exercise.”
