The Lagos chapter of the Nigeria Labor Congress (NLC) and other civil society groups on Friday held a meeting to appraise the progress of protests they’ve embarked against FG’s recent increment of pump price of petrol.
The groups also discussed strategies for boosting the protests which have so far failed to show momentum and resolved to stage a massive protest on Monday, May 23, 2016, Sahara Reporters say.
“We really appreciate everyone who has been on the street with us since the beginning of the protest. We would also like to appeal to you not to be discouraged. This is not a fight of the union alone but for all the people,” said Comrade Amechi, the deputy national president of NLC.
The union leaders decided to converge again on Sunday, May 22, 2016, to prepare for Monday’s massive protests.
