“However, we strongly feel the declaration and commencement of the nationwide strike action is ill-timed and unfavourable for the Nigerian Muslim community.”

The group urged Labour Congress to consider the impact of the strike on one of the fundamental pillars of the Islam, which is Hajj and the attendant consequence on the forthcoming Eid-ul-Kabir festival nationwide and the financial implications the strike will have on Muslims.

The effect, the association said would run into billions of Naira having completed all necessary arrangements of accommodation, transportation, feeding in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including issued tickets and visas for thousands of the pilgrims(of which payments are non-refundable).”

“And would be affected by disruption of both the local and international flights operations.”
