NLC Prepares for Nationwide Protest over Proposed Sale of National Assets


The Nigerian Labour Congress says it’s mobilizing its members to embark on a nationwide protest against the proposed sale of national assets.

NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, see the proposal as reckless, as it will only benefit a small group of capitalists and government associates.

The NLC mobilized a joint committee with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to dialogue with the FG over the proposed sale of national assets. Wabba, however, says if that channel fails, the NLC will mobilize its members in protest.

He adds that the NLC is considering suing the FG. And it has about 20 lawyers who’ve indicted interest in pursuing the case on its behalf.

He also says the body is looking into alternative means that the government cam employ.
