Tinubu decries NLC strikes, vows to end corruption.

President Bola Tinubu expressed his concern about the frequent strike actions by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), stating that four strikes in nine months are unacceptable. While acknowledging the unions’ right to strike, he emphasized the need for peace and stability for the country’s progress during the commissioning of the Lagos Red Line rail.

Tinubu urged the NLC to prioritize stability over confrontation, recognizing the challenges faced by the fledgling administration. Addressing the recent street protests by the NLC and its affiliates, he called for restraint and reminded them of their collective responsibility in shaping the nation’s future. Tinubu suggested that the 2027 election cycle would be an appropriate time for union participation in the electoral process.

Optimistic about Nigeria’s economic trajectory, Tinubu emphasized collaborative efforts and reflected on his long-term vision for infrastructure development, including the Red Line rail project initiated during his tenure as governor 25 years ago. He called for unity and perseverance in overcoming challenges, reaffirming his administration’s commitment to fighting corruption despite acknowledging the inevitable pushback.

Tinubu assured Nigerians that the country would overcome economic challenges through hard work and perseverance. He expressed confidence in the momentum of positive change and progress, urging a commitment to consistency and perseverance for a brighter future.
