The state chairperson of NLC,  Mrs Agnes Sessy, gave the ultimatum during a protest in Ikeja, the state capital, on Tuesday.

She enjoined the government to act or risk another #ENDSARS protest.

“If the Federal Government does not resolve the strike within two weeks, there would be a nationwide mass protest. In fact, the #ENDSARS protest would be a child’s play,” she said.

Recall that, the National Labour Congress (NLC) had through its president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, said the union and its affiliate members will embark on a nationwide protest, on Tuesday July 26, and Wednesday,  July 27, in solidarity with the  unions in the public universities over the looking strike action.
