A strike is not what Nigeria needs now. – Murray-Bruce

Businessman and former lawmaker, Ben Murray-Bruce says the Nigeria must not go down because of the event in Imo, stressing that a strike is not what Nigeria needs at the moment.

The former senator disclosed this on his X handle on Tuesday.

His words: “A national strike over a local issue in Imo is not what Nigeria needs right now.

“The reforms are working. The Naira is responding to such reforms. Multiple banks have declared record profits.

“The manufacturing sector has begun to adjust, meaning that jobs will be created. To rock the boat now is not in the national interest.

“Let us think beyond ourselves and our allies. Nigeria must not go down because of what went down in Imo”.

On November 1, the Nigeria Labour Congress president, Joe Ajaero, was arrested by armed policemen while carrying out a state-wide protest last Wednesday, in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

The planned strike follows the brutalisation of the National leader, Joe Ajaero.

The attack on the labour leader, has been condemned by many Nigerians, including the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi.
