Labour Protest: Tinubu Made Some Commitments We’re Going To Review – NLC Boss

Joe Ajaero

President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero has said that the Congress is going to meet to review some commitments which President Bola Ahmed Tinubu made to them today, August 2.
President Tinubu, today, had an emergency meeting with the leadership of the Organised labour at the Presidential villa, Abuja, to address the issues that led to the nationwide protest which they embarked on today, August 2.
Answering reporters’ questions shortly after the meeting, Ajaero said that the issues discussed are the same issues that led to the protest today.
He said that the President however, expressed his position, made some commitment, which were taken side-by-side with what the Senate said to them earlier in the day when they marched to the National Assembly.
“And we’re taking it back to the office with our colleagues to review it and release a document on our next line of action.
“We have gone deeper into them. The President’s broadcast has broader issues, but there are one or two things that need immediate attention.”
The NLC President said that no one person can call off the protest, saying: “that’s why I say we’ll have to go back to the office so that they, the EXCO, will look at it before they come up. “And by tomorrow, the NLC will equally have their NEC meeting, to look at the bigger picture.”
On whether President Tinubu asked them to suspend the protest, Ajaero simply said: “the President is a pro-democracy activist. So he understands protests.”
