A sizable crowd attends the start of the NLC protest in Abuja.


The Nigeria Labour Congress, or NLC, has called a nationwide protest against the high cost of living in the nation on February 27 and 28, and it has started in Abuja.

NLC had issued a protest alert to its members in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and the 36 states regarding the suffering of Nigerian civil servants.
