The meeting with leaders of Trade Union and Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), will hold 7.p.m at the Presidential Villa Banquet hall on Sunday September 27, 2020 to avert the industrial strike which begins on Monday nationwide.

Spokesman of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment Charles Akpan, confirmed the development to our Correspondent on Sunday.

The Federal government had on Friday September 25, 2020 obtained a court order stopping the Labour Unions from embarking on the strike to press for a reversal of the recent hike in electricity tariff and increase in petroleum products.

Earlier at a meeting with leaders of the Organised Labour, Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, persuaded the Unions to shelve the planned strike, adding that the Legislature and Organized Labour are on the same page.

But, Ayuba Wabba insisted that the proposed strike was in the interest of Nigerians, who have been taken for granted by the Federal Government by failing to honour a subsisting court order stopping the Federal government from implementing the electricity tariff increase.

The meeting was attended by a three-man team from labour comprising of the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba; President of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Quadri Olaleye and the Secretary-General of the NLC, Mr. Emma Ugboaja.
