Boom RadioNG | June 3, 2024

Nigeria is facing major disruptions as the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) launch a nationwide strike over electricity tariff hikes and a deadlock on minimum wage negotiations.

Key Highlights:

  • Airports Closed: Major airports in Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, and Lagos are affected, with union members blocking access and leaving passengers stranded.
  • Schools Shut: Educational institutions across the country have sent students home, complying with the strike directive.
  • Hospitals and Power Supply Affected: Key hospitals, including the National Ear Care Centre in Kaduna, are closed. The national grid shutdown by electricity workers has caused a nationwide blackout.
  • Government and Business Closures: Government offices, banks, and businesses in states like Lagos, Edo, and Imo are shut, significantly disrupting daily activities.
