Members of the Rivers State council of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, have made good their threat to stage a solidarity protest over the lingering strike by university lecturers.
The members in their large numbers converged at the State headquarters of the Congress to begin the protest. From what can be gathered, the protesters are marching to the Rivers State government House to submit their protest letter.
Rivers State Head of Service had earlier warned workers in the state against joining the protest.
The group however, against all odds has taken to the streets in solidarity over the lingering strike by university lecturers.
Civil society organisations are also taking part in the protest.
