Protest Against Hunger Needless, Says Presidential Spokesman

Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, has slammed the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for staging a nationwide protest which he described as needless.

Speaking during an interview with TVC, he said the Federal Government has already started addressing the hardship in the land, and the fact that the Trade Union Congress (TUC) did not join the protest shows that it was needless.

Nigerian cities witnessed peaceful protests today as members of organised labour took to the streets to protest against the economic hardship and spiralling inflation confronting the citizenry.

Last-minute efforts by the Federal Government to stall the protest had ended in deadlock last night.

President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, however, led protests that were staged in Abuja, Lagos, Ibadan, Jos and other major cities of the country.

Other prominent Nigerians who participated in the protests include Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde; human rights lawyer, Femi Falana; the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, and others.
