The National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress today suspended the ongoing strike.
The unions said the suspension followed the intervention of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu
It was gathered that the meeting which was held between the leaders of the organised labour and Ribadu was a close door meeting.
The National Deputy Vice-President of the TUC, Tommy Etim, made this known in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
The NEC of the NLC and the TUC have suspended the strike. We did this based on our trust for the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, who gave us his words,” he said.
The organised labour is protesting against the alleged brutalisation of its National President, Joe Ajaero, and the failure of the government to implement some of the agreements reached on October 2, 2023 effectively.
