NLC Begins Protest In Lagos Over Fuel Subsidy Removal [Photos]

Members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have commenced protests in Lagos over the removal of petrol subsidy.

The protesters have converged on the Ikeja under-bridge and are set to move around the state and stop at the Governor’s office in Alausa, Ikeja.

Meanwhile, security operatives are on the ground to prevent the breakdown of law and order in the state and to prevent hoodlums from hijacking the protest.

We reported that the planned protest expresses the labour union’s displeasure over what it described as the unfavorable policies of the President Bola Tinubu-led government, especially the removal of fuel subsidy.

Recall that the NLC had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the federal government to reverse the fuel subsidy removal and all the policies that are anti-people.

The union also called on Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and its councils across the states to join in the August 2 nationwide strike to protest the soaring cost of living in the country.

It added that its planned nationwide protest would commence at 7:30 am across the federation’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
