Nigeria: two days of hunger strike

In addition to hunger, the strike launched by the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) on Tuesday morning is also intended to denounce insecurity throughout the country.

Several localities in Nigeria have been on strike since last Tuesday.

In a statement, the Nigerian Labor Congress, which called the strike, also called on the government to abandon the policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which, according to union representatives, are exacerbating the country’s difficulties.

Hostilities got underway in Lagos at around 09:00 am.

Several towns in the country followed suit.

On Monday, Nigerian Finance Minister Wale Edun announced the resumption of direct cash transfers to help over 12 million vulnerable households cope with the rising cost of living.

The minister asked Nigerians to be patient while the government implemented economic reforms.

The daily lives of many Nigerians have deteriorated sharply due to soaring food prices, forcing them to skip meals and eat poor-quality rice.

In recent weeks, residents of several towns in central and northern Nigeria had already taken to the streets to express their anger.
