May 21, 2016 – Drama As Delta Chapter Of NLC Stages Protest Using Fela Anikulapo Hit Song
The Delta State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday distorted the ‘Change’ slogan of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ‘Chain’. The congress has since Thursday pitched its tent under the newly constructed fly-over bridge by former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, with a loud speaker and playing victory and solidarity songs.
Their favourite has been the old records of Fela Anikulapo, Idris Abdulkareem’s hit song – Nigeria jaga-jaga, everything scatter- scatter, poor man dey suffer-suffer and China’s Food No Dey, Water No Dey and Light No Dey even as supporters of the strike carried placards with various inscription, including, “Nigeria Jaga-Jaga, Everything Scatter, Scatter”, “Electricity Na Wayo-Wayo”, “Food No Dey, Water No Dey, Light No Dey”, “Labour Say No to High Electricity Tariff”, “We Need Employment, Not Fuel Hike”, “Labour Say No to Fuel Hike”, “Buhari Heal Us, Don’t Kill Us” and “Election Na Wayo-Wayo”.
The state First Vice- Chairman of the congress, Jonathan Jemiregbe, said no amount of military dictatorship would end the strike unless the Federal Government reverts to the old pump price of N86.50.
