The NLC, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and their affiliate unions staged demonstrations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Lagos, Abia, Ondo, Plateau, Cross River, Kaduna, Kano, and Rivers States, among others
Among other demands by the Organized Labour include the immediate reversal of all anti-poor policies of the federal government including the recent hike in PMS (Premium Motor Spirit) price, increase in public school fees, the release of the eight months withheld salary of university lecturers and workers.
The union also demanded an upward review of the minimum wage from N30,000 to N200,000.
