The Nigerian Labour union on Tuesday called on Nigerians to begin to stockpile their homes with foodstuff ahead of November 6 strike over the new N30,000 minimum wage.
This warning came when the leaders of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Trader Union Congress and the United Labour Congress with their members marched from their NLC office at DLine to the Rivers State Government House to register their protest.
Speaking at the gate of the government in Port Harcourt, Igwe Achese, the National Vice President of the United Labour Congress, said they were at the government House to pass their protest message to Governor Nyesom Wike.
His words: “The only thing that can abort this strike is if they agree to our terms. Until that is done, there is no going back.
“Our message is for Nigerians to begin to stockpile their homes with foodstuff because this strike when it begins, it will not end until the Government meet our demands,” Achese said.
Also speaking, Beatrice Itubo, the chairman of the River state council of the NLC, reiterated that the economy of the country will be shut down on November 6 if their demands were not met.
