NLC to hold protest against Ngige on Monday

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) will hold a one day national protest in Abuja on Monday following the attack on its members who were on a peaceful protest.

Mr Ayuba Wabba, NLC president said this at the end of an emergency meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the NLC on Thursday in Abuja.

According to Wabba, the protest is against the action of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige who engaged thugs to disrupt workers’ peaceful protest on Wednesday.

He, therefore, demanded an unreserved apology from the minister and the Federal Government over the action it said infringed on the fundamental right of workers to protest.
