Planned Strike: FG To Meet Labour Leaders By 10am This Morning


In a desperate move to avert a nationwide strike by organised labour and its civil society allies over the N145 per litre new pump price of petrol, the Federal Government has invited labour leaders in the country for a meeting today.

House of Representatives will also, today, hold a special plenary and take a position on the recent increase in price of petrol.

However, leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, their counterparts in Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, and civil society allies had on Saturday, given government up till  midnight tomorrow to reverse the pump price to the pre-Wednesday, May 11 rate of N86.50 or face a nationwide strike and street protests.

It was gathered that the meeting will take place 10 am today at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
