NLC’s Planned Protest With ASUU Is Illegal – FG.

The Nigeria Labour Congress has been notified by the Academic Staff Union of Universities that their upcoming strike will be illegal. 

FG stated this on Wednesday. 

On July 17, 2022, the National Labor Congress (NLC) declared that on July 26 and 27, 2022, it will launch a national protest to compel the federal government to end the five-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities and its three sister organizations. 

Recall that on February 14, ASUU began a one-month warning strike. The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Educational Institutions, and the National Association of Academic Technologists were among the latter groups to quit operating in universities across the nation.

Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture, stated that the planned street protest is unlawful because the NLC does not currently have a dispute with the government in a statement to State House Correspondents on Wednesday, following the Federal Executive Council meeting that was presided over by Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.). 

Mohammed charges political interests with driving the congress and urges it to "isolate itself fully from politics."
