Fuel Hike Cuts Shorts NLCs Planned Strike Action

NLC Suspends Strike On Fuel Hike


Bamidele Fashube, ABUJA, Nigeria. (GVE) – Contrary to ‎initial plan of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) President, Ayuba Wabba to review the nationwide strike on Wednesday, the NLC on Sunday has reportedly suspended it’s strike action.

Reports filtering in Sunday in Abuja stated that the union made the decision after several deliberations with National Executive Council of the NLC.

‎”‎After an exhaustive deliberation, NEC noted its protest action was informed by the twin issues of the unjustified and illegal hike in electricity tariff and increase in the pump price of petroleum products.

“In consideration of the above, NEC after due consultation with its constituents resolved to suspend with immediate effect, the action it commenced on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. The action is thus hereby suspended,” Wabba said.

The strike action which generated lots of controversies amidst prevailing economic situation had led to partial collapse of business activities in Nigeria.

The National Leader ‎of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Friday also visited the Labour House in Abuja to appeal to the union led by Wabba.

He also appealed to ‎the labour leaders to support the present administration by returning to negotiation table.
