Organised Labour have called off the nationwide strike that was called in protest of government’s removal of subsidies on the price of fuel. The decision was made known by the National Presidents of NLC and TUC respectively, Messrs Abdulwahed Omar and Peter Esele in a press conference given in Abuja earlier today.
On whether all stakeholders were carried along, Peter Esele said that civil society organisations were consulted in meetings that ended in the wee hours of the morning. He also went on to say that the new N97 price of fuel was a unilateral decision made by the government.
Civil society groups are holding meetings however, insisting that they were not consulted by Labour before the called of the strike.
