Supporters of Tinubu gathered for a youth rally at the National Assembly, expressing disapproval of the planned protests by the NLC

Date:

Dozens of pro-democracy activists marched from Unity Fountain to the National Assembly complex in Abuja on Friday, urging the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to halt its planned two-day protest and resume negotiations with the Federal Government.

They pledged to rally Nigerians against the unionists if lawmakers couldn’t persuade them otherwise. Displaying anti-NLC placards, the protesters voiced their concerns, with one stating, “Let’s be patient with Tinubu.”

The Convener of Nigerian Civil Society Forum, Sunday Attah, criticized the NLC’s stance, urging them to consider the UK’s example where citizens supported the government during economic challenges.

Attah emphasized the need for patience and cautioned against plunging Nigeria into anarchy.

Co-convener Terrence Kuanum argued against shutting down commercial activities, offering a 24-hour ultimatum for the NLC to reconsider the protest.

Meanwhile, the NLC remains determined to proceed with the planned protests against economic conditions, ignoring warnings from the Department of State Services and scheduling a nationwide protest for February 27 and 28 due to the government’s alleged failure to fulfill commitments.
