The Nigeria Labour Congress-organized protest on February 27 and 28 has prompted the Trade Union Congress to warn that it could degenerate into chaos.In light of the widespread hunger in the nation, the union claimed that the nation was excessively unstable and tense.

Dr. Tommy Etim, the Deputy President of the TUC, issued this warning.In an effort to draw attention to the suffering that Nigerians are currently experiencing as a result of the sharp increase in the cost of goods and services brought on by the removal of fuel subsidies and the depreciation of the naira, among other factors, the Organised Labour intends to go on a two-day strike on Tuesday and Wednesday.Protesters in Kano, Niger, Oyo, and Osun states, among others, had sprung up in pockets, calling on the government to act decisively to end the suffering.Nigeria’s annual inflation rate increased from 28.9 percent in December to a nearly 28-year high of 29.9 percent in January, exceeding market estimates of 29.5%.

The cost of food has reached an unprecedented level, with a bag of long-grain rice reaching N77,000.Online users can be seen bemoaning the price increases of everyday products like butter, toothpaste, and tin tomatoes in multiple videos, and pleading with President Bola Tinubu to step in.

In an effort to emphasize their demands for a shift in the nation’s economic direction, many have also stated that they would be willing to participate in the NLC protest.The TUC withdrew its support, claiming that it was unaware of the rally’s scheduled dates. The wall of organized labor cracked as a result.

The TUC has declared that it will not be a part of the demonstration, despite the NLC’s insistence that the two-day rally must take place.Regarding the scheduled rally, Etim said it was mistimed and pleaded with the NLC not to send the nation into chaos.

Speaking about the reasons behind the TUC’s withdrawal from the planned demonstration, the labor leader charged that Joe Ajaero, the President of the NLC, was acting alone by not enlisting the support of TUC members in his decision to call for a two-day strike.

Etim claimed that by taking decisions alone four times, the NLC had betrayed the TUC and that this was now a conscious action.”When one claims that an error has been made and it is one that can be accepted as an error, but when it is up to four times, it is now a deliberate action,” the speaker stated.

The NEC is meant to convene in order to examine an ultimatum that is given to the government, to start with. After that, they will decide what to do.

The NLC president made the decision to declare their intention to go on strike in this instance, even though he had not been in violation of any laws or industrial relations practices, because the Federal Government was still under the threat of legal action.

We can not understand it. That is too much for us to bear.What good is unionization if its members do not band together for a common goal? Therefore, it is not a good idea to adopt a situation where two centers have been on the ground and one believes it has superior knowledge.

“I believe he ought to be sensitive enough to understand that we need to save the nation and that this is not a one-party issue. We need to work together as a team.

Furthermore, we have asserted that a people united cannot be overcome. The President needs to delegate authority to himself.
