In light of this, the banks have issued a directive to the public on a strike financial on September 5th and 6th, 2023.

It was gathered that the instruction was given by the National Union of Banks, Insurance, and Financial Institution Employees (NUBIFE) according to the union’s General Secretary, Mohammed I. Sheikh.

The statement reads, “In accordance with the communique released following the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held on Thursday, August 31, 2023, all affiliated unions are hereby directed to instruct their members to participate in a two-day service withdrawal, commencing on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 5th and 6th of September 2023.

“This directive has become necessary to draw the government’s attention and serve as a warning against undue interference in the internal affairs of unions, rather than addressing the severe economic challenges currently faced by our nation.

“We hereby call upon all our affiliated unions to adhere to this directive by ensuring that all members abstain from their duties for the specified two-day period. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.”
