Comrade Abdulwahed Omar, NLC President
The parley between the Federal Government and organised labour, expected to work out a truce that will end the strike that has paralysed the country the last one week following the removal of fuel subsidy, is scheduled to hold at 6pm Saturday evening at the Conference Room of the First Lady’s Office.
The meeting is holding after the Executive Councils of both the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) meet to brief the expanded body on the outcome of the meeting the leaders held with government Thursday and what action to take next.
Although no concrete decisions were announced after Thursday’s meeting, both sides did concede that concessions had been made by both of them.
However, should an agreement be reached this evening, Labour, which put the strike on hold for the weekend to enable protesters rest and restock, will most likely announce the full suspension of the strike action.
