The National Industrial Court in Abuja has granted an order of interim injunction restraining THE NIGERIAN LABOR CONGRESS and TUC from embarking on any strike.
For what you may like to ask?
Well, let me help you with the answer. Because the Nigerian President doesn’t want them to hold any strike that could pose or send any message to the international community about the kind of leader, he is other than the false acclaimed integrity he has portrayed himself before the international community.
You can’t hide who you are as a person forever. So much has been said about the autocratic leadership style of President Muhammadu Buhari in the past as a Military head of state. He may have pretended about his person, deceived people into believing he respects rule of law but his later action in the democratic regime that old soldier truly never dies even in everything they ever ones lived as a soldier.
In China, people protest against the government who doesn’t seem pleasing to the citizens. In the US, people protest against policies they don’t find pleasing as citizens. It is the right of every citizen in every nation to air their view through peaceful protest but in Nigeria, it is a crime to protest even when all policies seem anti-people; the citizens. And you would wonder whether we should be regarded as a nation because every true nation has the right to demonstrate in a peaceful protest to send a message to the government over things, they don’t find appealing.
Well, let us wait to see whether or not this restraining order will be respected.
