Naira Scarcity: NLC Directs Workers To Shutdown CBN Offices Nationwide

Nigerian workers have been ordered to take over all the offices of the Central Bank of Nigeria nationwide starting from next week over the current cash crunch in the country.

The order was given on Wednesday by the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

NLC President, Joe Ajaero, gave the directive during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

The labour leader said the directive became imperative following the expiration of one week ultimatum given to the apex bank to make cash available for Nigerians.

The NLC last week gave the CBN and commercial banks a one week ultimatum to make naira notes available to workers and Nigerians.

The organisation said it would direct workers to stay at home if the apex bank failed to make the naira notes available to Nigerians.
