The President Bola Tinubu-led federal government recently held a meeting with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Abuja.

This meeting was called in response to the 14-day strike notice issued by the NLC and TUC. The federal government team, led by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, assured the unions that the payment of wages would be prompt and consistent.

However, the NLC and TUC did not waver in their stance and called on the Tinubu-led government to fulfill the agreement reached in October.

The NLC and TUC had announced their intention to embark on a nationwide strike due to the country’s hardship resulting from the removal of the fuel subsidy and the floating of the naira.

They argued that the government had failed to implement the agreement reached in October. During the meeting, the government and labour leaders discussed a 16-point agreement that was reached in October.

Onyejeocha appealed to the labour organizations to withdraw their 14-day ultimatum, stating that the government was working diligently to complete the implementation of the agreement.

Present at the meeting were the President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, and the Vice President of the TUC, Tommy Okon.

Despite the government’s assurances, the unions stood their ground and insisted that the government fulfill its promises.

The outcome of this meeting will determine whether the planned nationwide strike will proceed or be averted.
