The Confederation of All Progressives Congress (APC) Support Groups is asking the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to reconsider its decision to go on strike.
The group’s Director-General, Kailani Muhammed, believes that the strike could have serious negative effects on the economy and the country’s democratic processes.
In a statement released in Abuja, Muhammed passionately appeals to the NLC to cancel the strike. He specifically mentions the physical assault on the NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero, in Imo State as the reason for the strike.
He emphasizes that the NLC is fully aware of the consequences of the strike and its potential to harm the nation.
Muhammed warns that the strike could have a devastating impact on the country. It may disrupt the Nigerian economy and cause chaos by halting all economic activities.
He also points out that the common people, whom the NLC aims to protect, will be the most affected. The already high cost of goods and services will skyrocket, and prices are unlikely to come down.
The APC Support Groups make this appeal as concerned citizens who care about the well-being of Nigeria. They believe that canceling the strike is in the best interest of the nation.
