Several labor unions have called for an indefinite nationwide strike from Thursday, September 27. The strike is being called over the government's failure to consider implementing a new national minimum wage within the agreed timeframe. Businesses, schools, and transportation services could all be affected. Associated protests with the potential to turn violent are possible.


Individuals in Nigeria are advised to remain vigilant at all times and avoid all demonstrations and sites where clashes are particularly likely (government buildings, main squares, etc.).

The security environment in Nigeria remains complex. Although travel is permissible in some areas, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
