NLC gives reasons for suspending strike


NLC strikeThe Nigeria Labour Congress, on Tuesday, explained that  it suspended its nationwide strike planned for Tuesday to protest fuel subsidy removal, because the government demonstrated willingness to hold dialogue and provide “reasonable palliatives to cushion the effect of its policies.”

The NLC gave the explanation in a communique issued at the end of its emergency National Executive Council on Tuesday.

“Considering the mood of the socio-polity, last elections and the need to pursue national stability and consequently, the NEC-in-session resolved as follows:

“To commend and applaud the diligence of the congress’ leadership in carrying out the assignment given to it by NEC;  to demonstrate to the Federal Government the need to comply with the laws of the land, especially as it concerns obedience to the rulings of the courts and their brazen disregard for the 2023 Appropriation Act.”
