ASUU: NLC plans national protest as police demands notification

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has announced the plans to commence a two-day nationwide protest on July 26, 2022, in solidarity with the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities and other unions in the public universities.

The congress disclosed this in a circular dated July 15, 2022, and addressed it to the chairpersons and secretaries of its state councils.

This is just as the police demanded notification from the labour union.

The circular, signed by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba; and General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, was titled, “National protest to get our children back to school.”

According to the circular, the protest would be held on July 26 and 27 at all state capitals and the Federal Capital Territory.

The protests in states are expected to take off from NLC state secretariats while that of Abuja will take off from the Labour House, Abuja.

“You are requested to immediately convene the meetings of your SAC to disseminate this information and to fully mobilise workers in the states for this very important protest for good governance,” the circular concluded.
