Strike: Charly Boy To Organise Rally to Support Labour

Posted by Thandiubani on Tue 04th Jun, 2024 - tori.ng

Charly Boy said he would mobilise 90 per cent of Nigeria’s power bikers for a rally in support of labour unions in Abuja if they do not end the ongoing strike before next week.

 
Veteran singer Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has said he's in support of Organized Labour's strike over new minimum wage.
 
The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, had on Monday embarked on an indefinite strike to force the government to agree on a new minimum wage for workers and reevaluate the increase in electricity prices for certain consumers.
 
However, the labour unions reached an agreement with the federal government on a new national minimum wage late Monday, suggesting that the strike may be resolved soon.
 
While the new minimum wage amount was not specified, both parties agreed that the federal government would commit to a figure higher than the N60,000 it currently offers.
 
Reacting on Tuesday morning, Charly Boy said he would mobilise 90 per cent of Nigeria’s power bikers for a rally in support of labour unions in Abuja if they do not end the ongoing strike before next week.
 
On his X handle, he wrote in Pidgin: “If NLC no f**k up and cancel this strike by next week. I go mobilize 90% of Nigerias Power Bikers. We go storm Abuja, if heaven go fall or the devil go land. We will say, bring it on.

I just don tire. Yeye dey smell.”
