By Miriam Humbe, Abuja

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), is to embark on a nationwide industrial action and withdrawal of services in the 36 States of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Wednesday, June 7, 2023.

A statement signed on Friday by the NLC General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja said the decision followed the NLC’s National Executive Council meeting held on June 2, 2023.

The NLC said the withdrawal of services was against the fraudulent increase in the price of fuel across the federation.

The NLC therefore directed all State Chairpersons to fully effect compliance and abide by the decisions of the National Executive Council.

Here’s a full text of the NLC statement:
