Nigerian Labour Congress President Asserts: Protests Will Persist Despite Government Actions

The President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, has expressed his unwavering determination to continue the ongoing protests across the nation.


In a conversation with Channels Television at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, Ajaero emphasized that no government action or overture can deter the organized labour from pursuing their demands.

He further accused the government of being unresponsive to their concerns, stating that dialogue remains elusive.

Protests Forge Ahead Despite Government Actions:

Ajaero firmly stated that the protests, organized by members of the Nigerian Labour Congress, will continue unabated.

Their actions are a response to recently implemented policies under the leadership of President Tinubu.


Commencing as planned on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, the demonstrations began slightly later than expected, with members assembling in large numbers and wielding high placards and loudspeakers to voice their grievances.

Government Unwillingness to Engage in Dialogue:

One key issue highlighted by Ajaero is the government’s apparent reluctance to engage in meaningful dialogue with the organized labour.

Despite the persistent protests and the growing demands for attention to pressing issues, the government has shown little willingness to listen or respond to their concerns.

This lack of receptiveness has only fueled the determination of the protestors to continue their demonstrations.

Protestors Remain Unyielding:

Ajaero made it clear that no form of government action or concession will convince the organized labor to halt their protest actions.


The unwavering stance of the NLC indicates a deep-seated belief in the importance of their cause and the urgency of addressing the anti-people policies implemented by the government.

The protests serve as a powerful expression of the collective discontent and determination of the workers to have their voices heard and their demands met.


As the protests persist across the federation, the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero, remains resolute in his stance that nothing will hinder the demonstrators from pursuing their cause.

With the government’s reluctance to engage in dialogue and address their grievances, the organized labor is steadfast in its pursuit of justice and change, making their presence felt through demonstrations and mobilization.

Only time will tell how this situation unfolds and whether the government will heed the calls for reform and take action to resolve the ongoing crisis.
