The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) will hold a joint extraordinary National Executive Council (NEC) meeting tonight at 7 pm to discuss the ongoing industrial action and recent developments.
This decision follows a meeting between the leadership of organised labour and the National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu.
During the meeting with the NSA, the labour leaders were briefed on the steps taken so far to address their grievances, including the arrest of two individuals involved in the alleged brutalisation of NLC President Joe Ajaero. The NSA assured the labour leaders of the government’s commitment to resolving the outstanding issues and expressed his understanding of the gravity of the situation.
The emergency meeting was disclosed by the National Vice President of the TUC, Tommy Etim.
He said, “We commend the steps taken so far by the NSA. He made us understand that he didn’t see the issue on the ground as a political fight. He also noted that two people have been arrested in line with the brutalisation of Ajaero. Initially, the government felt the strike would not hold. They were shocked to see that we went ahead with our threats.
“We are going to have an extraordinary joint NEC this evening by 7 pm and I can tell you there is hope,” he said.
