Some protesters were seen carrying a banner in mockery of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, today in Abuja at the ongoing protest organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress in solidarity with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

An official of the ASUU said they were carrying the banner as a form of protest against the Labour Minister over his inability to resolve the issues between the federal government and ASUU, and for his last Wednesday’s statement concerning the ongoing protest.

The NLC had threatened to go on a two-day protest on July 26 and 27 in solidarity with the strike by the ASUU.

Ngige had earlier said he would be surprised if the NLC goes ahead with the planned protest.
