However, the group gave CBN additional wo weeks to ensure Naira notes circulates across the country.

It was reported that NLC had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to end the petrol and cash scarcity being experienced in the country.

NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero said the decision to picket the CBN branches became necessary as the federal government and the CBN had failed to show any commitment to addressing the situation.
