The authorities Nigerian Labour Congress NLC and Trade Union Congress TUC had on Monday, September 28 suspended the nationwide strike that was supposed to hold in all 774 local government areas of the country.
The strike was called off at about 2:35am after a 7-hour meeting. Nigerians are not pleased with the news and millions of them have taken to social media to blast the NLC and TUC for being chicken-hearted and behaving cowardly.
Others have even stated that the NLC is filled with figureheads and that Nigerians should not think they have any Labour Congress representing them.
Taking to Twitter, which is the app where most Nigerians turn to for bants and tongue-lashing, it has been alleged that the NLC officials suspended the strike because they received brown envelopes and credit alerts. It is worthy of note that the hashtag ‘NLC and TUC’ is trending on Nigerian Twitter.
