*NLC Orders Nationwide Shutdown Of CBN Offices By Workers*
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has commanded workers in the country to close down all the offices of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) nationwide starting from next week.
The directive was given by the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

He also lamented the lingering fuel scarcity issues in the country and the attendant challenges it has brought the way of the citizens of the nation.
