  1. NLC-TUC, OTHERS: What are you going on strike for? Because AJAERO was molested? Yes, some of us were deeply concerned with the way NLC President was treated as if he is not a human being. Even an animal shouldn’t have been treated like that. What has NLC done for Nigerians since after OSHIOMOLE? Nothing! They are just Labour contractors. Have you ever called for a nationwide strike against jumbo pay to NASS Senators and Reps. that go home 31million Naira as against less than #30K for civil servants. And worst still some are not paid or paid in percentages. There are several alternatives to compel Nigeria leaders to adjust their excesses.
