NLC vows to continue strike on Thursday

Abuja - The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has vowed to continue with its strike action on Thursday, following the commencement of a nationwide protest over fuel prices on Wednesday.

"Accordingly, we urge you to mobilise your members, friends or colleagues for the continuation of the protest tomorrow.

The union has vowed to plow on with the protest despite a court injunction barring the move.
