A mere twenty-four hours after launching nationwide demonstrations against the elimination of petroleum subsidies, Organized Labor has suspended its planned strike action.
Festus Osifo, president of the Trade Union Congress, disclosed this information in an interview with Arise News on Thursday morning.
He stated that the Labour leaders who had earlier met with President Bola Tinubu secured immediate implementation commitments for some of the issues raised during the meeting.
He explained that this was the reason why the strike was suspended.
Following a meeting with the Federal Government, it was reported in a press release issued on Tuesday that the Nigeria Labour Congress would proceed with the nationwide mass protest as planned.
Comrade Joe Ajaero, president of the NLC, stated that the meeting with the government did not result in any positive changes or concessions that would alter their course of action. They emphasized that they remained committed to representing the workers’ and people’s desires and interests in Nigeria.
More details will be shared soon.
