Tinubu keeps mute on NLC protest

While speaking on the collaboration within his team and the confidence he had in them, the president was quiet about the protests against the hardship in the country by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

The NLC has announced a two-day protest against the high cost of living in the country, which has been traced to the removal of fuel subsidies and the floating of naira in the country. The union suspended the protest after Tuesday, February 27, the first day, saying its objective had been achieved.

But Tinubu, in his tweet, said:

"We might be going through a difficult period now. Still, when you look at the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC), the Federal Ministries of Finance, Budget and National Planning, and the people manning the ship of this country, including the Central Bank of Nigeria, they have collaborated. In the spirit of development and progress, we are glad that reasonable effort is being made to re-engineer the country's finances and make growth our hallmark."
