Fox Nigeria journalist Esther Odili has over two years of experience covering political parties and movements.

FCT, Abuja – The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has warned the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) not to embark on a strike on the eve of the Salah holiday.

MURIC’s executive director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, gave this admonition on Wednesday, June 5, via a statement.

As reported by Vanguard, Akintola said the NLC’s one-week moratorium falls due on Tuesday, June 11, which is approximately on the eve of this year’s Id-el-Kabiir (Salah).

Akintola cautioned that kicking off another strike on the eve of Salah would be seen as an act of hostility towards Muslims, who form a large segment of Nigeria’s population.

He advised the organised labour to steer clear of Islamic landmarks and respect the Salah holiday, warning that any strike during the holiday would be met with resistance from Muslims.

Akintola said:

“We affirm clearly, categorically and emphatically that another strike on the eve of Salah will be an anti-Muslim strike. Muslims are duty-bound to break it.”
