In the early hours of Tuesday, August 2, the labor union chapter in Abia State took to the streets in solidarity with its Union colleagues across the country to make the grievances of the workers in Nigeria known to the governors and as well as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Recall that last month the Union warned that it would go on strike if all the grievances of the citizens were not immediately addressed by the leaders. Today, as they had threatened the Federal Government that they would do, her various chapters across The Nation have been seen protesting at strategic locations in their respective States. In Abia State, a group was sighted at Okpara Square, a major roundabout on the road that leads traffic into the central Business district of Umuahia, the capital city of Abia State. On their placards are written their respective complaints, including the hike in the cost of fuel and the minimum wage.
