The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress have decided against suspending their planned nationwide strike, after a meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
Leaders of the union stated that the plan to embark on a nationwide strike on Monday, September 28, 2020, continues as the government has not acceded to conditions for the strike to be called off.
President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, and his TUC counterpart Quadri Olaleye gave conditions including a reduction in the price of fuel and electricity tariff.
Speaking after the meeting with Gbajabiamila on Saturday, Wabba said, “all the actions pronounced will be taken as the notice expires tomorrow”.
“We also told him how the meeting with federal government went and how the meeting was adjourned and he has promised to also intervene at his own level to see that we don’t inflict more pains on Nigerians.
“In the course of the discussion, we have also realised that the house of representatives has done a lot on the issue including recommendations which they have shared mutually.”Photo Credit: Twitter
