Economic Hardship : Gov Makinde Joins NLC Protest In Ibadan



Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, joined the nationwide protest declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC over the high cost of living, inflation, insecurity, and hardship in the country.

Makinde, a governor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, joined the protest in Ibadan, the state capital.

In a video that surfaced online, the governor is seen among protesters who were chanting his name as he addressed them.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress had, on February 8, issued a 14-day nationwide strike notice to the Federal Government over the failure to implement the agreements reached on October 2, following the removal of the fuel subsidy.

The FG’s failure to fulfill its promises after the ultimatum by Labour will be met with a two-day nationwide protest, slated for today (Tuesday), February 27, and Wednesday, February 28.

The organised labour had, last Monday, begun mobilising its members for the nationwide protests over the high cost of living in the country.
