All sectors will remain shut as workers protest — Organised labour

The Deputy Vice President, Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr Amaechi Asogwuni, disclosed at a news conference on Sunday, September 27 2020 that the Organised Labour in Lagos State has said all sectors including aviation, banks, and others would be shut as workers would take to the streets to protest on September 28.

He said, “No airport will be in operation in Nigeria; banks are not expected to function, so no business owner should risk himself/herself as Nigerian workers have taken that decision.

“We are the workers and we are withdrawing our services; we have the right to do so because protests are our constitutional right.

“And I believe we will enforce it; schools shall remain closed until this action ends,” he concluded.

Asogwuni further called on Nigerians to join the protest, saying it was part of their quota to democracy.
