Protests in Edo Over Hardship

Ahead of today’s nationwide protests spearheaded by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) against the hardship in the land, demonstrations were held yesterday in Lagos, Osun and Edo States against the cost of living crisis.

The NLC had insisted on the two-day mass protest, commencing today, despite the warnings by the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi. The latter had cautioned that the planned mass protest was in contempt of court.

Meanwhile, the emergency close-door meeting which the federal government held last night with the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) was deadlocked.
