Breaking: NLC, TUC Suspend Strike

The National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday, November 15 suspended the ongoing strike.

The unions said the suspension followed the intervention of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu alongside the Minister of Labour, Simon Lalong, at the Office of the NSA this evening.

Reports have it that the meeting which commenced this evening lasted for over an hour during which various affiliates and state chapters reviewed the outcome of the meeting held between the leaders of the organised labour and government representatives.

The National Deputy Vice-President of the TUC, Tommy Etim, spoke to journalists in Abuja, the nation’s capital city when declaring the suspension of the nationwide strike.

He said, “The NEC of the NLC and the TUC have suspended the strike. We did this based on our trust in the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, who gave us his words,”

The organised labour declared a nationwide strike expressing their displeasure of the alleged brutalisation of its National President, Joe Ajaero, and the failure of the government to implement some of the agreements reached on Monday, October 2, 2023, effectively.

It was gathered that the National Security Adviser, Mallam Ribadu had announced that the individuals responsible for the brutalisation of the National President, Joe Ajaero had been arrested.
