The NLC has previously stated that it would join forces with other affiliate unions in a joint rally to denounce the country’s ongoing university workers’ strike, which began on February 14, 2022 after the federal government failed to implement their demands.
On July 26th and 27th, 2022, all union members will mobilize in large numbers and take part in the NLC/ASUU solidarity protest against the ongoing closure of the nation’s tertiary institutions.
A larger gathering is expected in Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, and other urban areas, as participants will gather at the NLC secretariat in state capitals.
Security forces will be deployed to monitor the protest, and violence cannot be ruled out if police disperse crowds arbitrarily. All protest sites are likely to cause traffic and business disruptions.
- Expect traffic and business disruption on the protest days of July 26th and 27th, 2022.
- Before you go out, determine the location of the demonstration and, if possible, avoid the area.
- Be very vigilant as you move around your daily business.
- If you come across a demonstration, do not become inquisitive; instead, leave the area and find another route to your destination.
- Keep up with current events for any possible updates via local media.
