BREAKING: NLC and TUC suspend strike

On Wednesday night, the National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) took the significant step of suspending the ongoing strike. This decision materialized after the intervention of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu. The pivotal meeting, commencing just past 7 pm, stretched for nearly an hour. During this time, various affiliates and state chapters meticulously evaluated the outcomes of the prior meeting between the organized labor leaders and Ribadu.

Tommy Etim, the National Deputy Vice-President of the TUC, disclosed this development in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja, stating, “The NEC of the NLC and the TUC have suspended the strike. We did this based on our trust for the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, who gave us his words.”

Earlier that day, labor leaders engaged in discussions with Ribadu and the Minister of Labour, Simon Lalong, at the Office of the NSA. Notably, the NSA announced the arrest of individuals responsible for the alleged brutalization of Ajaero, the National President of the organized labor.

The backdrop to the strike was the organized labor’s protest against the purported brutalization of Joe Ajaero and the government’s perceived failure to effectively implement agreements reached on October 2, 2023.
