NLC members protest economic hardship in Kwara, Kaduna

Civil servants in Kwara and Kaduna States have stormed the streets of Ilorin and along Independent Way in Kaduna respectively to voice their concerns about the prevailing economic challenges in the country.

The workers in their masses were seen carrying placards and banners with different inscriptions while chanting protest songs on Tuesday.

The protesters said threats by the govt can deter them from registering their displeasure over the poor economic situation in the country.

The workers are protesting what they perceive as the government’s failure to uphold agreements made between the parties on October 2, 2023, subsequent to the removal of the fuel subsidy.

The protest, however, came following the conclusion of a 14-day ultimatum issued to the Federal Government to implement measures against the widespread hardship.

This is as the meeting between the federal government and the NLCon Monday night ended in deadlock with the union vowing to kick off the protest.
