The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN ) has said it will join the Nigeria Labour Congress’ (NLC) 2-Day Nationwide protest which will hold on 27th- 28th of February, 2024 as directed by the Congress after its NEC-In-Session rose from a meeting held today, 26th February 2024 in Abuja , that directs all it’s affiliate members across the nation to strictly comply.

According to John Kennedy Ikemefuna, Head of Media, MWUN, the protest will hold as a result of the Federal Government’s refusal to honour the 2nd October, 2023 Agreement signed with the Congress.

Kennedy stated that the Congress supposes that the nation would not have been in the present hardship condition if the Agreement had been kept to and implemented.

” The protest is coming on the backdrop of the Federal government’s refusal to honour the “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” he said.
