“We are in notice of the decision of meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) which held on Thursday, 27th July 2023 directing ALL NLC Affiliates to mobilize and sensitize their members preparatory for a nationwide peaceful MASS PROTEST AND RALLY scheduled to kick start Wednesday 2nd August, 2023.”

“Consequent to the foregoing, all NAC, CWC, NEC and our members in all ports, jetties, terminals and Oil and Gas Platforms nationwide, most especially, All Districts And Units are by this notice Directed to commence immediate and total mobilization of our members to effectively ensure their participation in the nationwide peaceful Mass Protest And Rally from Wednesday, 2nd August, 2023 as directed.”
