ASUU: NLC Holds Abuja Mega Solidarity Protest On Wednesday

General Secretary, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC Emmanuel Ugboaja   says the congress will hold an Abuja Mega solidarity protest in support of trade unions on the strike by public universities.

Ugboaja made this known in a statement signed by Bello Ismail, on his behalf and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

It will be recalled that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and other trade unions in the education sector have been on strike for over five months for alleged failure of government to keep to agreements entered with the unions.

The demands of the striking workers include issues bordering on funding of universities, salaries and earned allowances of lecturers, among others.

According to Ugboaja, in furtherance of the decision of the National Executive Council of the congress, a mega rally will hold in Abuja July 27.

President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, had said that the Nationwide protest was to compel the Federal Government to do the needful so that the students would return to school.
