The leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), is directing all workers to picket all the offices of the Central Bank of Nigeria nationwide starting from next week over the current cash crunch in the country.
NLC President, Joe Ajaero, gave the directive during a press conference in Abuja today.
The labour leader said the directive became imperative following the expiration of one week ultimatum given to the apex bank to make cash available for Nigerians.
The NLC last week gave the CBN and commercial banks a one week ultimatum to make naira notes available to workers and Nigerians.
The organization said it would direct workers to stay at home if the apex bank failed to make the naira notes available to Nigerians.
