Protest: Our agitation for common man is to live a good life – Kwara NLC 

 

The chairman of the Kwara state chapter of the  Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Saheed Muritala, has expressed optimism that the protest by the labour union would give room for negotiations and stakeholder’s meeting with the government.

Comrade Muritala told newsmen at the start of the protest Tuesday in Ilorin that he believed the meetings and dialogue after the protest would provide solutions to some of the problems in the country.

”The purpose of the protest is to let the government know that they need to re strategise on some of their policies, especially on the economy and security.

”This is because with insecurity, no matter how rich you are, your life isn’t safe.

“And for the economy, we need to strengthen the naira, why are we dollarising our economy when our currency is Naira?

”After the protest, I believe government will give room for negotiations involving all stakeholders through which solutions to some of the problems will be provided.

”And when that is done, there is no need for any action again from us. All what we are yearning for is for the common man to live a good life,” he said.
