Wait for 2027 if you want to do politics, Tinubu taunts NLC on Lagos visit

Bola Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu on Thursday urged the organised labour to make peace, saying it was unfair calling for strikes within just nine months of his administration.

The president said this at the inauguration of the red line rail in Lagos, where he reiterated his commitment to deliver good governance to Nigerians.

Tinubu said that no matter how much the organised labour laid claim to their freedom and rights, calling for industrial action within nine months of an administration was “unacceptable”.

“If you want to participate in the electoral process, wait until 2027; if not, then make peace. You are not the only voice of Nigerians,” he said.

Tinubu assured Nigerians that with perseverance and hard work the country would be out of the woods.

Tinubu’s statement came days after the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) staged a protest rally over the high cost of living in the country.

It planned the protest for two days, but suspended it after the first day.

The NLC is also threatening to call a strike later if the government fails to address its grievances.
