The National Asociation of Nigerian Students (NANS) has said it will join the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in a massive protest and strike on Monday, September 28, 2020.
According to report NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have been mobilising their members for the strike over recent hike in fuel pump price and electricity tariff.
The NANS PRO (Southwest Zone D), Kazeem Olalekan Israel, told The Nation all JCC chairmen in the southwest region have been notified and mobilised to galvanise students for mass action on Monday.
A statement by Kowe Odunayo Amos, Coordinator, NANS Zone D, said: “Today, the people are living in despair and there is high cost of living. Low standard of living with the government doing absolutely nothing to ease the clear hardship we have in the land. There is no proper adjective to employ in describing the increment which PMS pump price has received in the last 3 months”
“It is based on the foregoing we declare our solidarity and full support… We call on all Civil Society Organisations both on and off campuses to unite and mobilise millions of Nigerians to the streets on Monday.”
