The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has accused the courts in the country of being accountable for the present hardships, suffering, and lack of progress experienced by the citizens. NLC also advised Nigerians to ignore alleged state-sponsored rallies aimed at oppressing workers, comparing them to the past “Youth Earnestly Ask for Abacha” movement, which reminds them of the dictatorial days under the bespectacled dictator who trampled upon democratic and civil rights.
Comrade Joe Ajaero, President of the NLC, addressed the participants during the closing ceremony of the 2023 Rain School in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, urging workers to be prepared for another round of struggle for the emancipation of the people and workers. He criticized the previous nationwide action organized by the labor over the fuel subsidy removal, stating that it was sabotaged by a court injunction obtained by the government in questionable circumstances.

He called on all Nigerians to unite and build a coalition against oppressive policies and defend their rights and privileges.
