Strike: Actual reason NLC suspended protest, Ajaero opens up

Recall that the leadership of the NLC on Tuesday night, February 27, directed its members to suspend the second day of nationwide protest. According to the NLC, the strike has achieved great success.

Reacting to the development, the presidential aide condemned the NLC’s nationwide strike action and maintained that instead of the union going on strike, why can’t Ajaero seek dialogue with Tinubu’s government.

Onanuga said:

“Ajaero keeps shooting the goal post. Joe Ajaero is not playing the politics for Labour the way it should be played. Sometimes he appears to me as a very unreasonable leader. Why call people on the streets, when you can hold further talks with the government of Nigeria to know where the problem lies and the federal government will update you.

“The government has given Mr Ajaero and his group the explanation, whatever that has not been done, he will say this is the reason why we have not done this. But every time, he (Joe Ajaero) keeps threatening government as if the labour union will have to run the federal government. There is a position and decision of Labour but government is government.”
