The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC has refuted recent reports circulating about an alleged countrywide strike set to begin on Monday, December 18.
In a statement released by Beson Upah, the NLC‘s Head of Information and Public Affairs, he clarified that the notice being shared on social media was a fabrication.
He urged the public to dismiss the notice, emphasizing that there were no plans to initiate a strike.
The statement reads, “It has been brought to our attention a notice of a strike action (purportedly signed by the General Secretary of NLC and Secretary General of TUC, Comrades Emmanuel Ugboaja and Nuhu Toro, respectively) to commence tomorrow, Monday, December 18 across the country.
“We want to re-assure Nigerians that this notice did not emanate from us, and neither do we have any intention of initiating any strike action this period.
“Accordingly, concerned Nigerians are advised to ignore this notice. It is fake”.
