The NLC will be meeting the government today

The General Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Peter Ozo-Eson, while speaking to Punch Newspaper on Sunday, May 15 revealed that the Ministry of Labour has invited the NLC for a meeting at the office of the Secretary-General of the Federation.

Ozo-Eson said while the NLC will honour the meeting, the only thing that could stop the planned strike action is a reversal of the hiked price of fuel and the 46 per cent increase in electricity tariff.

If the Federal Government fails to reverse the two hikes however, the NLC would take to the streets in the planned protest even as the first meeting between the government and the NLC would be on Monday, May 16 by 3pm..

“I have received a text message inviting us to a meeting tomorrow (Monday) at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and we will attend,” he told Punch.

‘‘We will attend those meetings but the notice given is not conditional to our action.  It is conditional on the reversal of the hike in the price of petroleum and the hike in electricity tariff.

“But we are saying that is not what is crucial; what is crucial is that we will mobilise unless there is reversal. If there is no reversal, we will meet on the streets.”
