Members of the civil society organisations have warned the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC and Trade Union Congress, TUC, to jettison their proposed strike which starts today, arguing that though things are tough,but the NLC and TUC should consider the consequences of going on strike on the nation.

The civil society organisations noted that though things are hard, but the organised labour should consider the consequences of going on strike because it might be hijacked by aggrieved Nigerians, who have been benefiting from fuel subsidy, and the strike may lead to loss of lives and property.

They warned against the protest being hijacked like EndSARS protest.

They noted that the federal government and Lagos state government had already initiated palliative measures to cushion the effect of the removal of oil subsidy, just as they urged other state government and local governments to follow suit, just as the CSO’s members volunteered to assist the government in the distribution of the palliatives in ensuring they get to the vulnerable members of the society.
