After a joint Press Conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress have given the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), two more weeks to make cash available to the citizens.
The NLC and TUC acknowledged remarkable improvements in the disbursement of cash across money deposit banks but said more still need to be done to ease the hardship on Nigerians.
It would be recalled that the NLC had issued a one week ultimatum to the CBN to make naira notes available or its members would picket the bank’s offices nationwide.
NLC also said that its members would stay at home across the country as a way of protesting the hardship being faced over cash crunch.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, had however intervened on Monday as it brokered a truce between Organised Labour and the CBN.
