BREAKING: NUC, TUC Fixes Date To Declare Total Nationwide Strike


The Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has redeployed Barde for “neutrality sake” ahead of the November 11, 2023 governorship election in Imo State.
The organized labour group demanded the removal of the state police commissioner and the arrest and prosecution of the government aide accused of leading the attack

A complete nationwide strike has been proclaimed by the leadership of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), with effect from Tuesday, November 14, 2023.
The agreement was made by the two union leaders following an unusual meeting of the National Executive Council on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to the two main labour unions, members and supporters have already started a nationwide mobilisation campaign.
The brutalization of NLC National President Joe Ajaero in Imo State last week prompted the Organised Labour movement to take action.
There had been widespread outrage by the Organised Labour accusing the Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Mohammed Barde, of complicity in the recent attack on Ajaero, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The Organised Labour last Friday handed the Federal Government a five-day ultimatum to replace the police commissioner, while also blaming Governor Hope Uzodimma who is seeking re-election of the attack on Ajaero though the governor had since said he had no hand in the attack on the labour leader.
The Organised Labour also demanded the arrest and prosecution of some of the governor’s aide and threatened to embark on a nationwide industrial action if their demands were not carried out.

Already, the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, on Sunday, redeployed Barde for “neutrality sake” ahead of the November 11, 2023 governorship election in Imo State.
