Not that I’m against protest,after all,those who know me can attest to the fact that I used to lead fiercest protests in time past. Now,I may develop some restraints in spearheading this because of age and family responsibilities, but in reality, I don’t hate the ‘game’.

As we are going on with these protests, the kind that is canvassing for on the poster below,let’s do it with civility, let’s be circumspect and wary of antics of bad elements amongst us.

The caption:UYO INDEFINITE PROTEST depicts something serious. There are those who would carry on with the seriousness of the matter within the ambit of the law,also,there are those, especially the street urchins,who WILL seize the window to unleash terror on unsuspecting members of the society.

Pls the organizers of this particular protest should keep measures and parameters on ground to check the excesses of these sons lucifer.

That’s my takeā€¦..and I go in peace

NLC to go ahead with Monday protest despite court order

NLC to go ahead with Monday protest despite court order

The Nigeria Labour Congress has insisted on going ahead with its planned mass action scheduled for Monday September 28, despite a fresh court order obtained by the Federal Government on Friday September 25, barring them and the Trade Union Congress from embarking on their planned strike. 

The organized labour’s General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja in a communique addressed to its members told them to come out in large numbers to protest against the increased fuel price and electricity tarrif. 

All National Leadership of affiliates in Abuja were directed to mobile at least 2000 of their members to Unity Fountain, Abuja for the mass rally which takes off at 7am.

Affiliates are also expected to mobilise the same number of members to the NLC Sub-Secretariat, 29, Olajuwon Street, Yaba, Lagos, which is the take-off point for the Lagos action at 7am also.

It is also expected that all Presidents and General Secretaries will lead and identify with their members at the take-off point
