The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Sunday, urging them to reconsider their decision to go on strike. Speaking to journalists at the Cathedral Church of Christ Marina in Lagos during an inauguration thanksgiving service, the governor pointed out that all presidential candidates during the election campaign had promised to remove fuel subsidy if elected. He questioned what had changed and emphasized the need for patience, as the new President had not even completed a week in office. Sanwo-Olu stressed that a strike would not resolve the issue at hand and instead called for a focus on finding solutions to improve the economy. He also mentioned that the issue should not be politicized, urging the NLC leadership to exercise restraint and consider the well-being of the people they represent.
