NLC, TUC Strike: Lagos Schools Send Students Home

Public schools in Lagos shut down operations on Wednesday in compliance with the directive of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) leadership, instructing workers to embark on industrial action.

Students from various public primary and secondary schools were observed on the roads and streets, heading back home.

Some students were seen loitering around the school premises.

At a public secondary school in Mushin, the gate was left wide open as students exited, and teachers were seen gathered under a tree, holding discussions.


A teacher mentioned that they complied with the directive from the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), an affiliate of NLC.

The NLC Public Relations Officer for Lagos, Adejumo Ismail, confirmed that the NUT and ASUU had joined in solidarity with the strike.
