Nation’s Seaports Will Be Shut During Labour Protest, Says Maritime Union

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) says it will shut down the nation’s seaport in line with the two days nationwide protest called upon by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

Rising from an emergency meeting held at its headquarters in Lagos, the leadership of MWUN said it would join NLC to protest the current hardship and hunger ravaging the country.

In a statement issued on Monday, John Kennedy Ikemefuna, Head of Media at the MWUN, said if government had honoured the agreement, that would have gone a long way to ameliorate the sufferings occasioned by what he called the ill-conceived and ill-implemented policies brought upon Nigerian Workers and the citizenry.

He added that the MWUN, as an affiliate of the Nigeria Labour Congress, would in totality comply with the NLC directive.
