Strike: We’re copying you – TUC president Osifo knocks FG over alleged flouting of court order

Fuel subsidy: We will act by August 19, if FG has no solid plan – TUC

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) president, Festus Osifo, has stated that the union will proceed with its planned strike in opposition to a court ruling that prohibits it.

Osifo justified this decision by asserting that the Federal Government sets a poor example for trade unions and regularly disobeys court judgments.

In an interview on Arise TV, Osifo elaborated on this stance, expressing that the TUC is merely emulating the behavior of the government.

He cited instances where the government neglected court orders, including the detainment of Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele by the Department of State Services (DSS) despite court orders for his release.

Osifo also raised doubts about the validity of the court’s injunction against the TUC strike, suggesting that it may be an illegitimate order aimed at impeding labor movements.

He challenged the authorities to arrest all Nigerian workers if they genuinely aimed to enforce the order.

“I don’t have any service,” Osifo said. “If you want to charge us to Court, we are here. We are not running away, Nigeria is our own. We will fight for the soul of this Country,” he added defiantly.

Commencing on Monday, the nationwide strike is a demonstration against the purported violence inflicted on NLC President Joe Ajaero in Imo state on November 1.
