Naira Scarcity: NLC Directs Workers To Protest At CBN Branch

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has directed all workers to protest at all the offices of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) nationwide starting next week over the persisting cash crunch.

Its President Joseph Ajaero who gave the directive at an ongoing press briefing at Labour House on Wednesday in Abuja said the directive became imperative following the expiration of a one-week ultimatum given to the apex bank to make cash available for Nigerians.

Ajaero said that the decision was necessary after the ultimatum issued last week has ended.

The Labour leader assumed his new position as the national president at a time when Naira and fuel scarcity began to push Nigerians into hard times.

In his acceptance speech a month ago, Ajaero vowed to mobilise workers against the dual challenge of fuel and naira scarcity if the federal government fail to address the issues.

On Wednesday, the organised labour leader said the Congress would also direct its members to observe sit-at-home should the scarcity persist.
