LABOUR SUSPENDS PLANNED STRIKE, FG TO PUT ELECTRICITY TARIFF HIKE ON HOLD 2

The Nigeria labour congress NLC has suspended its strike scheduled for today after a meeting between labour leaders and the Nigerian Government.

This was contained in a statement read by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, after a technical session on Sunday and lasted till the early hours of Monday morning.

The decision to suspend the strike followed an agreement reached between both parties and averts a nationwide strike which would have grounded economic activities in the country.

Organized labour, however, stressed that the strike was suspended not called off and it could be recalled if the government doesn’t hold up its end of the deal made at this meeting in the next two weeks.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba has also agreed to the dialogue, with government and the resolutions reached. NEWS EXPRESS
