NUT joins NLC strike as schools shut down in Lagos


Following the industrial action by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and its members and affiliates, public schools in Lagos have been forced to shut down operations in adherence to the directive.

The Nation reported that students from various public primary and secondary schools were sent home from different government schools.

Some students were seen returning homes, while some others were observed loitering around the premises of the schools.

In Mushin, the gate of the public secondary school was opened as students were moving out of the school compounds while some teachers were having a discussion under a tree in the school premises.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a teacher in the school disclosed that the school complied with the directive of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), an affiliate of the NLC.

The spokesperson of the NUC in Lagos, Adejumo Ismail, disclosed to journalists on Tuesday, November 14, that the union would comply with the directive of the NLC.

He said: “The teachers have joined — NUT and ASUU too have joined. All the unions in the tertiary institutions have joined in solidarity.”
