NLC Directs Workers To Shutdown CBN Offices Nationwide

Nigerian workers have been ordered to take over all the offices of the Central Bank of Nigeria nationwide starting from next week over the current cash crunch in the country.
The order was given on Wednesday by the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
NLC President, Joe Ajaero, gave the directive during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.
The labour leader said the directive became imperative following the expiration of one week ultimatum given to the apex bank to make cash available for Nigerians.
The NLC last week gave the CBN and commercial banks a one week ultimatum to make naira notes available to workers and Nigerians.
The organisation said it would direct workers to stay at home if the apex bank failed to make the naira notes available to Nigerians.

Rotimi Amaechi Revealed That Tinubu's

Former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives of compromising the governorship and state assembly polls in Rivers State.

Amaechi expressed his frustrations over the conduct of the ongoing exercise, especially in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state where he cast his vote on Saturday, March 18, 2023.

Addressing journalists after voting at his Ward 8, Polling Unit 14, Ubima Community, the former Rivers governor accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government in the state led by Governor Nyesom Wike of victimising opposition parties.

According to him, the situation has led to voter apathy in the state as most people who are determined not to vote for the PDP refused to come out for the exercise over fears of being assaulted.

“There is a total failure of governance in the country, complete failure such that police is helping PDP arrest APC, and SDP members.

“People are being arrested and nobody has spoken. The governor has no right to declare anyone wanted.

“The Inspector General of Police is doing nothing, nobody is doing anything. Now there is voter apathy. I don’t know if it cuts across the country but there is complete voter apathy in Rivers State,”
the former Minister stated.

Speaking further, Amaechi berated the performance of the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, in the 2023 general elections, saying he and some other people were opposed to his re-appointment to lead the commission.

Recall that Yakubu was heavily criticised for his handling of the presidential election which was tainted by the failure of the commission to upload results on its results viewing portal in real time.

Meanwhile, Amaechi said he's unsurprised by the electoral umpire's conduct, alleging that an unnamed person from the camp of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, nominated Yakubu for the INEC job.

He also insinuated that Yakubu might be beholden to Wike having previously worked under the latter as the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) in Rivers State.

Amaechi's words: "There are those of us who opposed the re-appointment of Mahmood. The person who nominated him for appointment is a member of Tinubu's camp. So what are you expecting? success?"

"Here in Rivers State, Mahmood worked under Wike as Executive Secretary of TETFund. So what you're having in Rivers State is that APC, SDP, and others are contesting election not against PDP, it's against INEC and the police."

Nationwide Strike Looms As NLC Gives CBN & FG

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress has threatened a nationwide strike if the Federal Government fails to end the cash crunch in the country in seven days.
President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero issued the ultimatum on Monday in Abuja, at the opening session of the Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting of the labour union.
Ajaero, who frowned at the difficult situation foisted on Nigerians as a result of the cash swap policy of the Federal Government, warned that on the expiration of the seven days, workers would be directed to stay away from work if nothing is done to ameliorate the situation.
The NLC president equally criticised the current fuel scarcity in the country, lamenting that workers and Nigerians are being pushed to the wall.
“On this issue of fuel scarcity and cash crunch, Congress wish to inform the Federal Government that we will no longer keep quiet.

“NLC is giving the CBN and the FG seven working days, if they fail to do the needful at the expiration of the seven days, all workers in Nigeria should stay at home,” Ajaero stated before the meeting went into a closed-door session.
