President Bola Tinubu, yesterday, frowned at the protest called by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, saying his administration cannot be judged after just nine months in office.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, on February 8, issued a 14-day nationwide strike notice to the Federal Government over the failure to implement the agreements reached on October 2, 2023, following the removal of fuel subsidy.

In response to the NLC, Tinubu said, “It is unacceptable to call for strike in just nine months of an administration,” saying it should wait till the 2027 general elections to contest.

The President, who arrived at the venue, Ikeja Train Station, at exactly 12.10 pm for the official flag-off, later witnessed the signing of the contract for phase two of the LMRT Redline project between the state government and the contractor.
