Addressing journalists on Thursday in Lagos, NLC’s vice president, Amaechi Asugwuni, said the decision was in compliance with directives of the national leadership of the union.

“From here, we are going round Lagos to ensure that every institution is indeed shut down.

“Today if the airport (Murtala Mohammed International Airport) is opportune to open, I am very sure that they will not open tomorrow. Nobody flies in this country,” he said.
