Nigeria’s labour unions call indefinite strike over cost of living

Nigeria’s two biggest workers’ unions plan to start an indefinite strike next week to protest against a cost-of-living crisis after the government scrapped a popular but costly petrol subsidy. According to Reuters, unions have been pushing President Bola Tinubu to reverse his decision in May to scrap the decades-old subsidy that had kept fuel prices low but was draining government finances.
