The NLC Chairman said the planned strike, contrary to some views, is an attempt towards liberating Nigeria and its workers from the current economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy.

The Labour leader also announced that a joint committee has been constituted by the NLC and the TUC to monitor the compliance to the proposed strike in the state.

He warned that erring affiliate unions will be disciplined appropriately.

Further justifying their planned action, Alex Agwanwor said the removal of fuel subsidy by President Bola Tinubu has not helped the welfare of the workers, as the cost of goods and services continue to increase astronomically.

He pleaded with Civil Society Groups and the masses to support the planned action by the Labour Centres.
