Katsina group to NLC: Put off the scheduled protest; the Nigerian government is trying its best

Posted by

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has been advised to postpone its preparations for a strike and protest by the Coalition of Katsina Groups for National Unity and Integration.

The group’s coordinator, Comrade Hamza Umar Saulawa, stated as much in a communiqué on Sunday.

He praised the Federal Government’s efforts in addressing Nigeria’s economic problems, praising the creation of CNG conversion centers, the National Minimum Wage committee, and the payment of the N35,000 wage award.

The recent engagement with state governors to address rising living costs and insecurity, he added, demonstrated the government’s determination to hold talks and address concerns.

According to the statement, “no government on this earth can meet the demands of the NLC in 14 days,” so the union should put an end to the demonstrations and carry on with talks.

The Coalition, drawing comparisons to the #ENDSARS protests and their aftermath, issued a warning about possible harm to the country’s precarious calm.

The coalition issued a strong denunciation, highlighting the need to preserve the fragile calm in the nation and expressing displeasure of organizations and individuals taking advantage of the situation for political benefit. They urged the commercial sector, philanthropists, political office holders, and subnational governments to help lessen the suffering of the populace.
