Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) on Tuesday joined the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to embark on a protest in Ikeja, Lagos.
The protest is being held in solidarity with the strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Mr Falana had earlier countered the minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed who said the protest was “illegal”.
‘’With respect, the proposed protest cannot be said to be illegal since it is an expression of the freedom of expression and freedom of assembly of Nigerian workers guaranteed by Sections 39 and 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 and Articles 39 and 40 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights Ratification and Enforcement Act Cap A9, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.''
