Following the prolonged industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and some other unions will begin a nationwide protest today.
University lecturers had on February fourteen shut down public universities over the inability of the Federal Government to implement agreements the two parties entered into in previous years.
The NLC had alerted Nigerians that today and tomorrow would be National Days of Protest across the country to force the Federal Government and the striking lecturers to resolve their issues and suspend the lingering strike.
The union had said the protest would hold at all the State capitals, while the mega rally would take place in Abuja to pressure the Federal Government to meet ASUU’s demands.
About forty NLC affiliates, including aviation, bank, oil and gas, electricity, construction workers and power holding companies are expected to participate in the protest.
