Nationwide Protest Planned Today By Labour Suspended


Nationwide Protest Planned Today By Labour Suspended

The Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Congress and Civil Society groups have suspended planned nationwide protests to be held today after overnight meeting with the government  which started at 7:30pm on Sunday and lasted till midnight at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Labour had planned to cripple economic activities, as a result of the increase in the price of fuel and electricity tariff but due to the resolution made after the meeting have given the government two weeks to fulfill their promises.

The Federal Government is to provide palliatives in the areas of transport, power, housing, agriculture and humanitarian support and for the increase in fuel pump price, both parties agreed that the deregulation should be sustained in order to cut down waste and increase local production, while the federal government will roll out palliatives that will cushion the economic impact.

At the meeting with the Federal Government, an agreement was signed by all parties in which the hike in electricity tariff was suspended while the new fuel price still remains but labour says if Government fails to implement the agreement after two weeks, no notice will be given before it embarks on strike.

simple but classic
