BREAKING: Labour Suspends Nationwide Strike Scheduled To Begin Today


Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has suspended its planned nationwide strike earlier scheduled to start today, Monday, September 28, in protest against the hike in pump price of fuel and electricity tariff.

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) tweeted that there was hope the industrial crisis might be avoided.

He stated on his verified Twitter handle(@fkeyamo): “Still negotiating with labour at exactly 12.34am. Some progress have been made. Concrete proposals on the table from both sides.

“Details being worked on by the temporary Secretariat. Gradually moving towards a point of convergence. Let’s hope….”
Furthermore, a source told Vanguard that it is possible the tariff will be suspended for two weeks, but said nothing specific about fuel pump price.

It is speculated that the issue of pump price hike had links with IMF, the World Bank and other international finance bodies Nigeria is indebted to.
