Lagos, (An24) – In a bid to demand for good governance and accountability, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba has announced a plan to protest nationwide on Thursday, 08/02/2017.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have announced the plan to hold national protest on Thursday.

According to Wabba, the protest tagged ‘National day of action against corruption and for good governance’ will hold in Abuja and Lagos respectively.

It will be marked with marches, rallies and submission of petition containing a list of demands to the government.

His words: “Workers and Nigerians will gather as early as 7am at the Unity Fountain, Abuja from where the protest will head to the Federal Secretariat, the National Assembly and to the Presidency.

“The union would take the protest to state level after the national rally as every Nigerian has the right to protest.

“The protest is necessitated by the need for good governance in the face of recession and free for all multiple exchange rate regime, which has very negative effect on manufacturing and other sectors of the economy.”
