NLC Suspends Nationwide Strike Over Fuel Price Hike!

We have just being reliably informed that the Aliyu Wabba led NLC have finally called off their nationwide strike due to the new price of fuel.

This was announced by the NLC leader today 22nd May 2016 after an emergency meeting of its organs – the National Working Committee and the National Executive Committee, at the meeting, talks were focused on the strike and the way forward.

Pump price of petrol was increase from 86.50 Naira to 145 Naira by the Federal Government on May 11, the 67.6 per cent increase had angered the labour union, with the union saying it was insensitive.

The NLC have now resolved to go back to the negotiation table with the Federal government and figure out a way to strike an agreement that works for both parties.

The Joe Ajaero faction of the NLC had already mooted that they would discuss with the government on a time frame to end the importation of petroleum products into the country.
