Labour calls off strike – “Count us out”, says civil society

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.

  1. I support the Civil Societies because we need to have an answer to 65naira or Nothing.

    On what basis did Labour call off this strike

    Do they realize that the citizens lot in the market place does not change.

    The CSOs need to provide the leadership that we need right now. This moment in history is too important to be lost

    Senator Afikuyomi, Festus Keyamo, NBA, NMA, Our Stars ( Desmond Elliot, Funke Akindele, Ronke Ojo, Dede etc), Where are you all

    PLEASE we cannot loose this fight. Nigerians keep allowing counter price every time a fuel hike comes up.

    Enough is Enough
