The Nigeria Labour Congress and civil society allies are going ahead with planned protests against economic hardship and insecurity in line with the decision of the National Executive Council.

In a statement by the President of the NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero, on Sunday, the citizens have a fundamental right to peaceful protest on February 27th and 28th, 2024.

Comrade Ajaero urged the federal government to find solutions to the pain, economic hardship, and hunger Nigerians are going through.

“All we are saying now is that let there be food for the people, let the people live in safety, let the people live a life of dignity devoid.”

The NLC President said the Congress remained resolute and determined to proceed with the planned protest on February 27th and 28th, 2024.

Meanwhile, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has urged the Federal Government to ensure the safety of the protesters.

Furthermore, the Department of State Security (DSS) implored the NLC to consider suspending the strike and dialogue with the federal government to find lasting solutions to their demands.

The DSS called on parents and guardians to guide their wards from inimical acts that could jeopardize public safety and harmony during the planned protests.
