It's fake – NLC rejects plan to start another nationwide strike on Monday

The Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have jointly debunked an alleged strike notice circulating widely.

A widely circulated message reportedly signed by the Secretary General of the NLC, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja, and the Secretary General of the TUC, Comrade Nuhu Toro, claimed an impending nationwide strike set to commence on Monday, December 18, 2023.

Organized labor debunked the statement in a statement by Benson Upah, head of information and public affairs of the NLC, on Sunday in Abuja.

According to Mr Upah, the statement is fake news and there is no strike announcement from our side.

“We would like to reassure Nigerians that this message does not come from us, nor do we intend to take any strike action during this period,” he said.

He said concerned Nigerians were advised to ignore the message and treat it as fake.
