The planned protest is aimed at pressurizing the Federal Government to conclude negotiations with striking universities unions and ensure that public universities resume for normal activities, among others.
This disclosure is contained in a circular issued by the NLC to all the state chairmen of the union, and signed by its National President, Ayuba Wabba, and the General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja.
Wabba, who stated that the protest will also extend to Wednesday, July 27, 2022, pointed out that it will be held in all states of the federation and Abuja.
