The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has insisted that its planned Tuesday and Wednesday protests over “mounting hunger and insecurity” in Nigeria will go on.

NLC President Joe Ajaero disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

Ajaero accused the Federal Government of allegedly trying to use an amorphous group, the Nigeria Civil Society Forum, NCSF, to attack its members during the rallies.

He vowed to ensure a total shutdown of Nigeria through the withdrawal of services by workers if any of its members were attacked during the protest.
Recall that the Department of State Services, DSS, has warned that the planned protest may be hijacked by “some elements.”

This was as the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi, warned that embarking on the rallies would be contempt of court.

However, the NLC statement reads: “We would want to inform Nigerians that the State has perfected plans to attack our peaceful rallies across the country.

“One of the groups being primed to attack our peaceful rallies goes by a nebulous name, Nigeria Civil Society Forum (NCSF).

“NCSF is one of the emergency groups put together, funded, promoted and remote-controlled by the government to cause violence against our members for electing to peacefully protest against hunger in the land.

“We, however, remain resolute, determined and prepared to express our pain and grief in a peaceful manner as Nigerians come 27th and 28th of February 2024.”
