NLC Shelves Proposed Nationwide Strike

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said that he was positive that the planned nationwide strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress would not hold.

This, he explained, was because the Federal Government had intervened to avert the industrial action.

He noted that Tuesday’s meeting of the NLC’s National Executive Committee would focus on the implementation of several steps by the Central Bank to avail cash nationwide to alleviate the suffering triggered by prolonged cash crunch in the country.

Ngige disclosed this at the 68th session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

The CBN Governor, Dr Godwin Emefiele, met the leadership of the NLC to avert a nationwide strike planned for Wednesday, March 29.
NLC had threatened to kickoff a nationwide industrial action if the Federal Government failed to address the lingering cash crunch, fuel scarcity, and electricity tariff hike.
