Nigerian unions launch general strike over minimum wage

LAGOS/ABUJA, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Nigeria’s main unions launched an indefinite nationwide strike on Thursday in a dispute over the minimum wage after talks with the government broke down a day earlier.

Government offices were shut in the capital, Abuja, while most of the city’s banks were closed. It was not clear if there was any impact on airlines, oil companies and crude production and most filling stations in Abuja were operating as normal.
