NLC Threatens Nation’s Shutdown After Bloody Protest

Following the bloody protest of yesterday, the ace pressure group in the country has threatened to take serious actions.Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has threatened to bring the country to a halt in the heat of the face-off between the workers’ union and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige over the latter’s refusal to assent to the workers’ choice of Comrade Frank Kokori as Chairman, National Insurance Trust Fund (NISTF).
