A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, said that the timing of the two-day warning strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is suspicious.

Omokri said this in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday.

The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) fixed Wednesday, September 6, to deliver judgement in the petitions filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP) and Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.

Earlier, the NLC announced it would hold a warning strike on Tuesday, September 5, and Wednesday, September 6, to press home its damage for the government to address the hardship occasioned by the petrol subsidy removal, among others.

But reacting, Omokri said the timing of the strike “is just too convenient for comfort”.

“Why go on a two-day warning strike on a day the Presidential Election Petition Court is to deliver its verdict? Why not do it after or before?

“This is suspicious, especially from an NLC President who openly supported and campaigned for Peter Obi during the election.

“There are 365 days in a year. This timing is just too convenient for comfort. The Wednesday, September 6, 2023, PEPC verdict must not be scuttled, and those who are shouting #AllEyesOnTheJuduciary must allow the judiciary breathe,” Reno Omokri said.
