Reading the news today suggest that, there is a nationwide strike looming as Labour walks out of talks with Federal Government over the new fuel price hike.
Nigeria is about to witness an extreme level of recession which they have never witnessed since 1987.
It is a good time for Nigeria Labour Council (NLC), on behave of fellow Nigerian workers to seek justice in the re-adjustment of the economy so as to accommodate the comfort of the working class at least to a reasonable level.
However, if the positive drama between federal government and Nigeria Labour Council continues, it may result into Nationwide strike.
While we do not pray for a nationwide strike, here are the creative ways of making money during the strike as Nigeria Labour Council (NLC) Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja accused the government of insincerity according to Daily Trust.
