The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has kicked off its two-day nationwide protests over the prevailing economic hardship in the country.

On Tuesday morning, the protesters began their marches from the Labour House in Abuja and the Ikeja under-bridge in Lagos, while chanting solidarity songs and slogans.

Adegoke Fayoade, the commissioner of police in Lagos, was on the ground at the nation’s commercial capital.

Joe Ajaero, NLC president, and Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 election, led the Abuja rally.

“There is hunger in the land. We are hungry. There is nobody that doesn’t know this. Our rally is a peaceful one,” said Ajaero.

The protesters also marched to the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.

A late night meeting on Monday between the federal government and NLC was not enough to convince the latter to shelve the nationwide protests.
