Workers on Wednesday commenced a nationwide protest on to demand better wages and working conditions following hardship caused by the removal of petrol subsidy.
The protest is being organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
The workers are asking for a new minimum wage after subsidy removal caused high food prices. They are also demanding an end to the privatization of public enterprises, the payment of outstanding salaries and pensions, and the improvement of healthcare and education.
The protest is expected to be held in major cities across Nigeria, including Abuja, Lagos, Kano, and Port Harcourt.
The NLC and TUC have warned that the protest will continue until the government meets their demands.
The protest is the latest in a series of strikes and protests by Nigerian workers.
The government has said that it is committed to addressing the concerns of workers. It is unclear how long the protest will last or what impact it will have on the country.
