NLC strike will ridicule Nigeria’s economy under Tinubu – Uzor Kalu

The senator representing Abia north senatorial district, Orji Uzor Kalu, has called on the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to suspend its planned nationwide strike billed to commence on Wednesday.

In an appeal via his verified Twitter page, the former Abia state governor urged the NLC and other labour unions to give President Bola Tinubu’s administration some time to deliver on its mandate.

“I sincerely appeal to the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) not to ridicule the economy with their proposed strike. It is a difficult time for all Nigerians, both the rich and the poor. I am an employer of labour, and I know that things are difficult. Even the President knows that things are difficult. “I implore the NLC to give the new government some time,” he said.

He further disclosed that the government was working tirelessly to revive the economy, and NLC should not further destroy it by embarking on strike actions.
