NLC And TUC Explain Why Planned Nationwide Strike Was Suspended..

Leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, yesterday gave insight into why they resolved to shelve the planned nationwide strike aimed at forcing the Federal Government to reverse the 200 per cent hike in the pump price of petrol.

Rising from an emergency National Executive Council, NEC, meeting yesterday, the president of NLC, Mr Joe Ajaero, and General Secretary, Emma Ugboaja, cited the mood of the nation, in view of the outcome of the presidential elections still being challenged at the tribunal, the need to pursue national stability and the restraining order obtained by the Federal Government from the National Industrial Court, NIC, as reasons for the decision to shelve the planned industrial action.

  1. The truth is that, the strike would have been counter productive. The North and South West wing have already pulled out from the planned protest.

    Secondly, should the strike had continued, sponsored thugs would have hijacked it.

    1. Teejay,

      I can't with you. Phew!!!

      In your personal life, is this how you reason? It's always someone else's fault. Jeez man!

    2. Try and stop talking in every post. I am not insulting you please. Strike actions in other countries are planned and not indefinite as the implications on businesses is usually disastrous. I live in UK but I have business in Nigeria. I have containers at the port. If this strike had happened the way it was planned. My goods will start to expire. I have goods with dates that need to be sold off ASAP. Imagine this strike goes for a month. Do you understand the implications to my business. Now multiply that by other people in similar or worse situations. In addition strike actions should be schedule. Do 1 day this week. Wait and do another one. But in Nigeria. Its opposite. Do you know how many people die in this senseless Nigeria strikes especially in the hospitals. Some people just make decisions that will affect all terribly. In UK we have strikes. Some days even those strike days schools open and they get teachers from elsewhere to teach. Now we have strike from the waste guys. My bin was to be picked yesterday. They did not come cause they where om one say strike. They came today very early and picked. Like I said I am not insulting you. I have noticed alot of your comments and it does not add up most of the time. But I think it's high time someone corrects you lovingly. The ones that strike actions affect the most are the poor that you are even fighting for in the first place. The middle and rich will loose some but they will balance one way or the other.

    3. Anon 15:17, why are prioritizing your business over the condition of Nigerians? Is your business more important that the welfare of Nigerins? Can't you see that the people in government have destroyed the Nation?

    4. Clearly you did not read well anyone 18:48. No words for you

  2. that is wonderful. Now please explain it to Air Peace that just sued you. I really wish Air Peace wins this case. This you peoples initial gra gra and interrupting peoples lives only to suspend or call off after your palms have been oiled is getting out of hand. You all reek of deceit and greed. #99Days

  3. The joe ajaero looks like he didn’t think it through.
    If you must come to justice/ equity, you must, with a clean hand.
