‘You’re Not The Only Voice Of Nigerians’ —Tinubu Tells NLC

1 min read

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday criticised the recent protest by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), cautioning the Labour movement to know that it is not the only voice of Nigerians.


The labour union, on Tuesday, embarked on a street protest across the country over the level of hardship following the removal of fuel subsidy.

Society watch reported that the president of the NLC, Joe Ajareo, speaking with newsmen, stated that the protest was about the high level of hunger in the country and the refusal of the Tinubu-led government to come to a conclusion on a new minimum wage.

Speaking during the commissioning of the Lagos Red Line Train connecting from Agbado to Oyingbo, Tinubu stated that while the union has its rights and freedom, it’s not the only voice of the Nigerian people.

“The labour union should understand that no matter how much we cling to our freedom and rights… to call for strike within nine months of an administration is unacceptable.

“If you want to participate in the electoral process, wait until 2027. If not, maintain peace; you are not the only voice of Nigerians.”
