Mixed reactions in Oyo, Over Suspended Nation Wide Strike

Mixed reactions have continued to trail the suspended nation wide protest/strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC in Oyo State.

Here in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, labour centers and civil society organizations have distance themselves from the called-off strike and vowed to proceed with the planned protest.

One of the leaders of the The Joint Action Front (JAF) which comprises Pro-labour Associations and Congresses, comrade Andrew Emelieze, said the NLC and TUC national leaders have betrayed the trust reposed in them, therefore, the civil society organizations will continue to protest against the insensitivity of the Federal Government to the well-being of the Citizens.
