She said: “There is strict compliance to the warning strike under the umbrella of NLC, all the affiliate unions joined the strike. Our demand is about the hike over the PMS which is making the lives of Nigerians to be somehow difficult due to the removal of subsidy.

“Another one is the interference of FG in NURTW crisis whereby the national secretariat of the body was taken over. There are some union affiliate that are not under NLC, they did not join, TUC did not join. All the local government areas workers joined the strike.
