The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has said it has planned to commence a compulsory Nationwide protest today. This is due to the delay in transmitting the recommendations given by the committee to the national Assembly.

According to the NLC general Secretary, Peter Ozo-eson Eson, the plan for a protest today has been confirmed. Several meetings have been held last year December and came to the conclusion that the protest will be embarked upon, today January 8, 2019 , due to the non-payment of the proposed #30,000 as the new minimum wage.
