Apapa port shut, commuters stranded as warning strike begins in Lagos

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has commenced a two-day warning strike, leading to a gathering of people outside the Apapa port, where port staff were denied entry.The NLC’s decision to commence the strike comes after it turned down a meeting with the Federal Government. This move is a response to the increasing hardships and suffering experienced across the country as a result of the removal of fuel subsidies.

On Friday, the NLC issued a notice for a two-day warning strike to protest the widespread suffering and impoverishment experienced across the country due to the removal of fuel subsidies. The NLC also threatened a complete and indefinite shutdown of the economy within 14 working days or 21 days after the warning strike if the government did not take steps to address the hardships experienced nationwide.

However, some workers at the Apapa seaport stated that they were unaware of the warning strike due to conflicting reports in the media. One anonymous individual mentioned that they no longer trust the statements made by the NLC and were not informed about the strike.
