Naira Scarcity: Nigerian Workers to Shut Down Central Bank Offices from Wednesday

By Jude Atupulazi

Starting from Wednesday, March 29, workers under the auspices of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, will picket every office of the Central Bank of Nigeria on the orders of the parent body, NLC, over the Naira scarcity in the country following the Naira Redesign Policy of the Federal Government.

The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, gave the directive during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, March 22, 2023.

The labour leader said the directive became imperative following the expiration of the 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.
