Browsing: NLC

There is no Nigerian that will tell you he is not aware of the NLC even if he does not know that it is an acronym for the Nigeria Labour Congress. What the average Nigerian knows about them is that they always go on strike at the drop of a hat, strikes that have lost their meaning because they always achieve almost nothing.

The following day, NEC will accept to temporarily call off the general strike after accepting the meagre offer on the table while claiming offer demands will be eventually met. Workers who had been mobilised, riled up and emotionally charged would be demobilized, downcast and disappointed with their radical leaders who suddenly turned coat and became docile and “reasonable”. That’s the end of the story until the next general strikes.
