As monitored across the country, the planned national protest at the instance of the Nigerians Labour Congress (NLC) had kicked started.

It is taking place virtually in most capital cities of the 36 States of the federation.

The processions were observed in Lagos, Kaduna, Bayelsa, and Kano States and largely a heavy presence of the Nigerian police was seen at strategic positions.

The strike is ongoing because the last-minute meeting that was called by the Federal Government ended in deadlock.

The discussion with the representatives of the organized labor did not go through as expected, failing to avert the proposed nationwide protest.

NLC president, Joe Ajaero, said the protest will be held on Tuesday.

“The rally goes on.

“That is all. We have concluded on that. We are not doing rallies for the sake of moving around.

“We have demands which we must present. Maybe by tomorrow when we present it at the National Assembly, a copy of it will be made available to journalists.

”It is part of their (DSS) constitutional responsibility to make sure that the rally is peaceful while we are going to try from on our side to make sure it is peaceful.”

That closed-door meeting was attended by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume; and the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun;
