Members of the Bayelsa State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) took to the Streets of Yenagoa to protest over the economic hardship being experienced across the country.

The protesting workers embarked on the peaceful procession along the Lambert Eradiri drive through the Melford Okilo Road, terminating at the Government House at Onopa in Yenagoa to press home their demands.

9News Nigeria Correspondent reports that the police and other security agencies were on the ground to ensure a hitch-free protest.

The protesting workers united under the umbrella of the Bayelsa State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress sang solidarity songs and carried placards with inscriptions such as ” Politicians, let the Poor Breathe”, “End Hunger and Poverty, We Reject IMF Policies”, Stop the High Cost of Living in Nigeria “, “Federal Government Make Our Refineries Work Again”, “Fund Our Public Schools “, amongst others.

In an address, the Chairman of the Bayelsa State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr. Barnabas Simon said the ailing economy occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidies and a spike in the exchange rate of the Naira to the Dollar had made life unbearable for workers and the ordinary citizens.

Mr. Simon noted that the spiraling inflation in basic food, goods, and services had made survival a Herculean task for many families.
