Economic Hardship: TUC Withdraws From NLC’s Protest

Economic Hardship: TUC Withdraws From NLC’s Protest

by Victor Ndubuisi

In an effort to lessen the current hardship in the nation, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has sent Chief Bola Tinubu a directive asking him to start importing food supplies from anywhere in the world within a two-week period.

The TUC has also accused the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) of being responsible for Nigeria’s high cost of living by pushing for the elimination of electricity and petroleum product subsidies.

The TUC has demanded that the government stop following these foreign organisations’ instructions.

UPDATE: Organised Labour Rejects Gbajabiamila-Led Committee

This is due to the Congress’s insistence that it was not a party to any process that it was not initially a party to, nor was it a part of the Nigeria Labour Congress’s (NLC) scheduled statewide protest.


The main points of the news conference given by TUC President Comrade Festus Osofo on Monday in Abuja included these and other things.

While the TUC did not address the planned protest by its sister union, the NLC, in its recommendations or solutions that it said it would present to the federal government through the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Comrade Osifo clearly stated that it was not a part of the protest when asked by journalists if it would take part in it.
