Nigeria was grinded to a halt on Monday by the industrial action embarked upon by labour unions. Schools, airports, hospitals were shut down as well as the National Grid, plunging the nation into darkness.

Although the federal government has said that it is committed to a National Minimum Wage that is higher than N60,000 at the resolution reached during the meeting with organized labour on Monday Night, the union in a post on X, announced that the strike action will continue until they hear from their organs at a meeting scheduled for today.

The Redeemed Christian Church of God over the weekend suspended, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade who is the Senior Pastor of the City of David parish and the head of the Apapa Family of the the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

Many believed that the birthday which was celebrated just about a week after Wigwe’s death was in bad taste. Herbert Wigwe had been of immense blessing to the church before his transition and so the birthday party suggested the church had no emotional attachment to him.
