The Labour and Civil Society Front, or LCSF, produced what the Nigeria Labour Congress, or NLC, called a bogus publication that was spreading on social media and threatening to shut down the nation if electoral fairness was not given by May 29. In a statement released yesterday, NLC President Joe Ajaero stated that the alleged statement and its contents were not only false but also malicious attempts by their writers to involve the NLC and the trade union movement in their bizarre scheme for reasons only they could have known.
The statement read: “The said publication titled; if electoral justice is not delivered by May 29, Nigeria would be shut down is not only false but mischief by its authors to drag the NLC and the trade union movement into their warped contrivance for purposes best known to their minds.

”Such a statement was unknown to us and we can neither be associated with it nor partake of whatever its intentions are.
“It is, therefore, important that we alert the public that we have not concluded any plans anywhere to mobilise any of our affiliates and constituents including the masses neither in Nigeria nor without for the purposes of embarking on any action after May 29 within the context outlined by the false statement.”
”We dissociate ourselves from its intents and mission and are dauntless to say that such publication is not from the LCSF.
“The conveners of the Labour and Civil Society Front remain, Ambassador Nkoyo Toyo, Senator Shehu Sani and Olisa Agbakoba, SAN, and any publication that does not have their imprimatur is false and can only be the handiwork of fifth columnists trying to use the organisation to mislead the public and create tension in the country”.
