NLC STRIKE: Poor compliance in Ibadan
THE nationwide strike called by a faction of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) failed in Oyo State yesterday as private sector workers were at their duty posts. In Ibadan, the state capital, most state and federal civil servants were in their offices. But there was a protest which started at the NLC secretariat, Agodi. The protesters displayed banners and placards condemning the price hike but did not harass those carrying out their businesses. Commercial transporters and other essential service providers opened for business. Banks and private schools were also open. At the Federal Secretariat, Agodi, over 60 per cent of workers reported for work. They carried out their duties till closing hour.
