The Nigerian union has said it will not abandon its threat to launch a nationwide protest against the new national minimum wage.

Leaders of the Nigerian Labor Congress, Trader Union Congress and United Labor Congress marched their members from their NLC office in D-Line Port Harcourt to the Rivers State Government House to register their protest.

At the gate of the government building, the national vice-president of the United Labor Congress, Igwe Achese said they were in the government building to hand over her protest message to Governor Nyesom Wike.

He said: "The only thing that can stop this strike is if they agree with our terms. Until this happens, there is no turning back.

"Our message is that Nigerians are beginning to provide their homes with food as this strike, if it begins, will end only when the government meets our demands."

Beatrice Itubo, chair of the NLC's River State Council, also reiterated that the country's economy would close on 6 November if its demands were not met.

No state government official came to the protesting workers.
