Lagosians trek miles as Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) declares strike on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.
Commuters were noticed trekking for miles along Ipaja Road due to unavailability of public buses on Thursday after the declaration of the strike over the lack of implementation of the national minimum wage by the federal government.
This declaration has led to difficulty with residents finding it difficult to get to their respective places of work coupled with an attendant increase in transportation fare.
Meanwhile, workers at the Ikeja Local Government Office were denied access into the premises of the complex and the same scenario played out at the Alausa Secretariat. Staff were not allowed in by members of the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
