Any person visiting Nigeria in the last couple of months would likely form two unquestionable impressions. The first is that the nation is under siege from criminal elements while the second is that she is facing an overwhelming number of strikes by public workers. None of the two can be said to be older or more prevalent than the other. Although the strikes do not involve killings which hold sway in the case of insurgency and armed battles, the impact which the paralyzing strikes have had on the nation are no less impactful.
When agitations for restructuring or succession are added to the troubles of running Nigeria, one wonders why some of our citizens are not in any way dissuaded from the struggle to become candidates at the next general elections of 2023. Of course, because it is practically impossible to do justice to all these issues in one article, the goal today is to pick one of the issues – strikes and attempt to examine its core dimensions.
