Presidency Faults Nigerian Labour Congress Over Nationwide protest

Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, has voiced criticism against the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for organizing a nationwide protest.

During an interview with TVC on Tuesday, Ngelale labeled the protest as unnecessary.

The presidential spokesperson stated that the Federal Government has already initiated efforts to alleviate the hardship.

He said, “Any labour union that is speaking to the concerns of Nigerian families, the pains that are being felt by our people, is absolutely free to do so. It is right that Nigerians speak up in difficult situations.

“And the government has been doing everything possible to alleviate those concerns. But we also want to separate the legitimate concerns being expressed by some of the labour unions from people trying to leverage some of the situations in the country to achieve a political agenda.

“We have seen the Trade Union Congress (TUC) pull out of the purported nationwide protest. We have seen the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) pull out of the protest. There is no unanimity behind what NLC is trying to do. I believe all of the legitimate concerns being raised by the unions are being tackled by the administration of President Bola Tinubu.”

Members of the NLC on Tuesday staged protest across the country pressing home their demand for a better economy.
