The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held a protest in Ikeja, the capital of Lagos State, in solidarity with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday.

The union and its affiliates embarked on the protest to express their dissatisfaction with the prolonged ASUU strike, fuel hike, bad governance and other challenges facing the country.

The demonstration was held simultaneously in the nation’s 36 state capitals and the FCT as proposed by Ayuba Wadda, the president of the NLC, on Sunday.
