The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has asked all the affiliate unions to return to work on Thursday after the successful execution of the two-day warning strike to draw the attention of the government to the hardship being faced by Nigerians as a result of the petrol subsidy removal.
In a letter to all its affiliates and Chairpersons of State Councils, The NLC expressed gratitude to them that they made significant strides in achieving the Congress goals set during its National Executive Council, NEC, where the decision for the strike was taken.
Part of the letter reads, “This collective effort was undertaken to emphasize our strong conviction that the government should prioritize the welfare of our citizens and adhere to our established statutes.
“We are pleased to report that, thanks to your resolute commitment, we have made significant strides in achieving the goals set during our National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which prompted the initiation of this warning strike.
“It is abundantly clear that our united message has resonated loudly with the government, and it would take a truly inattentive ear not to hear it.
“As we mark the end of the two-day nationwide warning strike today, at the stroke of midnight, we earnestly call upon you all to gracefully conclude the strike and return to work tomorrow, in accordance with our initial agreement.
“We would like to take this moment to express our profound appreciation for your unwavering determination and dedication, which played a pivotal role in the resounding success of this action.
