The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has said that it will join the two-day nationwide protests organised by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

The protests, according to NLC, will hold tomorrow and Wednesday.

MWUN Head of Media, Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna said the planned protest is coming against the backdrop of the Federal Government’s refusal to honour a October 2, 2023 agreement signed with the Congress.

“However, the Congress believes that if the Agreement had been honoured and implemented, it would have gone a long way to ameliorate the sufferings and hardships of the ill-conceived and ill-implemented policies have brought upon Nigerian workers and the citizenry of the country.

“In view of this, MWUN as an affiliate of the Nigeria Labour Congress would in totality comply with the NLC directive,” Ikemefuna said.
