All affiliate unions of the Nigeria Labour Congress have agreed to participate in the next week solidarity mass protest organized by NLC.

The protest is in solidarity with university lecturers and to salvage the education sector of the country.

The various affiliate unions made their commitment known during a meeting held at the labour house in Ado Ekiti to deliberate on how to carry out the protest.

Two of affiliate unions, JNC Chairman, Mr Kayode Fatomiluyi and NULGE president, Mr Oluseyi Olatunde noted that they have directed all their members to come out enmasse to rescue the future of the younger generation.

They explained that students of Nigeria Universities have over stayed at home, hence the need for government to hear the yearning of the lecturers by fulfilling agreement made with them.

Also, Ekiti State University SSANU, Chairman, Comrade Temidayo Aguda and Vice Chairman ASUU, Comrade Ayodeji Salami appreciated NLC for taken the bold step to join academic staff to salvage university education from collapsing.
