I’d have organised rally to support labour if FG had not resolved the minimum wage issue by next week

Maverick singer Charles Oputa, professionally known as Charly Boy, has disclosed plans to support the labour unions in their ongoing strike.

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday to force the government to agree on a new minimum wage for workers and reevaluate the increase in electricity prices for certain consumers.

However, the labour unions reached an agreement with the federal government on a new national minimum wage late Monday, suggesting that the strike may be resolved soon.

While the new minimum wage amount was not specified, both parties agreed that the federal government would commit to a figure higher than the N60,000 it currently offers.

Reacting on Tuesday morning, Charly Boy said he would mobilise 90% of Nigeria’s power bikers for a rally in support of labour unions in Abuja if they do not end the ongoing strike before next week.

On his X handle, he wrote in Pidgin: “If NLC no f**k up and cancel this strike by next week. I go mobilize 90% of Nigerians Power Bikers. We go storm Abuja, if heaven go fall or the devil go land. We will say, bring it on.

“I just don tire. Yeye dey smell.”
