Abuja, July 30, 2023 -Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, a Senator representing Abia North, on Sunday appealed to the NLC to cancel its proposed seven-day nationwide strike scheduled to start on Wednesday, Aug. 2.

Kalu made the appeal via his verified Twitter page on Sunday, urging the labour unions to give President Bola Tinubu’s administration time to deliver.

“I sincerely appeal to the Nigerian Labour Congress( NLC) not to ridicule the economy with their proposed strike.

“It is a difficult time for all Nigerians, both the rich and the poor.

“I am an employer of labour and I know that things are difficult. Even the President knows that things are difficult.

“I implore the NLC to give the new government some time.

“The government is working hard to revive the economy and the NLC should not further destroy the economy by going on strike.

“Let’s please exercise some patience with the new government,” the senator pleaded.

The NLC has advised Nigerians to stock their homes with food items and other essential things ahead of the commencement of its seven-day strike.

Labour is agitating against the harsh economic situation brought by the removal of petrol subsidy and economic measures introduced by the administration of President Tinubu. (GBN)
