The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held a protest across the country on Tuesday, amid the prolonged strike by university workers.
Newsmen gathered that the demonstration took place in all the 36 states of the Federation, while the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will join the protest today.
University workers, including members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Senior Staff Association of Universities (SSANU), and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU), among others, had gone on strike for various reasons.
Lecturers in government-owned universities – affiliated with ASUU – embarked on a nationwide strike on February 14 over the adoption of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) of the government as the payment system in the university sector.
