Members of the Nigeria Labour Congress are protesting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, in solidarity with the strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The protest which is currently holding is also an opportunity for the NLC to bring the attention of the government to other issues affecting the nation.
The protesters, on Tuesday, carried placards with several inscriptions such as “Governor Dapo Abiodun, increase subvention of Tai Solarin University of Education” among others.
See some photos from the protest below:
The protesters marched from the NLC Secretariat at Leme en route popular Kuto market and are now on the way towards the government secretariat at Oke Mosan.
ASUU strike has entered its fifth month since the union downed tools on February 14, 2022, leaving millions of students hopless about resumption.
The NLC had therefore, last week directed its members to embark on a two-day protest today and tomorrow (Wednesday) over the strike.
