Labor To Review Strike Action Next Week -NLC President

The President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba  Wabba, has said the organisation will, by the middle of next week,  review the indefinite nationwide strike action it declared on Tuesday night if the government is willing to open more windows of dialogue.            

He made this known on Thursday morning while speaking on  Political Platform, a  Ray Power FM programme, which was monitored in Abuja.



Wabba explained that the NLC leadership will convene another meeting to review and assess the impact of the industrial action and see if the government will change its decision to raise the pump price of petrol to N145.00 per litre.                                                        

The NLC President described as untrue the speculation that the organisation has been invited to another round of talks with the Federal Government, saying the NLC and the government ‎maintain the positions they held before the strike.                                              

Wabba, however, said he could not give an exact date for the review of the strike, but assured Nigerians that it will take place next week.  

The NLC, supported by some civil society organisations,  declared a nationwide strike and mass protest against the fuel price hike from N86.00 to N145.00.
