Labour Suspends Strike After Meeting NSA
Just a few minutes after meeting with the National Security Adviser, AIG Nuhu Ribadu, the organised labour in Nigeria has suspended the nationwide strike, which commenced on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, to protest the brutalisation of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) president, Comrade Joe Ajaero, in Owerri, the Imo state capital.
Press gathered that the decision to suspend the action was reached at an emergency visual joint National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC).
The NEC, in session, agreed to suspend the industrial action following a plea by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Malam Nuhu Ribadu .
The organised Labour had earlier held a meeting with the NSA who begged the workers to end the industrial action to allow for amicable resolution to the issues.
A source at the joint NEC meeting of the organised Labour told press that workers agreed to give Malam Ribadu benefit of doubt as he pledged to resolve the impasse.
